Swift Epic 480. "Amber&Gold"


A vintage style and pretty unique Swift Epic amber project that I decided to personalise as the "Amber&Gold" due to the contrasts that are to be seen in it.
I went for a straight grip with slightly flared end that is very comfortable. I think it really complements the reel seat design and it's a classy one. The wraps are amber-gold silk, stripping guide is a classy Mildrum SMRC, reel seat hardware is made of duronze (polished) with a gorgeous maple burl mortised insert, winding check is also polished to match the rest of the parts.
The rod comes with a spare tip so you can rest assured a potential accident won't ruin your fishing trip. Tube is a classy, polished aluminum with rounded brass ends.
Like all of my builds, this rod is built utmost precision and attention to details. 
It casts like a dream and can punch a #4 or #5 line into the wind at 50-60' with no problem, yet can delicately present a fly on the water with great precision.
I am offering this beauty up for sale so if anyone is interested feel free to contact me.
Price is $795 shipped worldwide!  Thanks for your interest!
