Swift Epic 580

Just finished this beautiful Epic 580 Amber rod. Simple color scheme with transparent wraps tipped in pale orange. I just love this new snub nose/modified full wells grip shape. It's really comfortable and feels great on a five weight rod. Not too thick nor thin and just feels right. The wood insert on this one is something special. It is locally harvested and turned by a knife craftsman and friend of mine. This particular piece of wood (Tisa wood) has some nice V-stripes as well as some longitudinal ones and the pale orange color is just gorgeous and matches the rod and the wraps. Up next is another 686 salsa. Thanks for looking!
