All Ameriglass blanks are designed by glass rod guru Mike McFarland and rolled in his shop in central Pennsylvania.  McFarland uses the most advanced glass composites with enhanced resin systems and offers the most comprehensive line of quality glass blanks available.  The hallmarks of Ameriglass blanks are quality, consistency, and straightness.  The fly blanks are available in several different models. From the deep flexing Classic to the quick shooting Big Game series there is an Ameriglass model perfect for any situation.

 

Ameriglass Classic Fly Blanks

The Classic models are designed with a slower, yet highly refined, taper and a traditional, deep flexing glass feel.  Classic blanks excel at true fishing distances and roll casting but will still make longer casts with ease.  Classic blanks offer high line feel and unmatched smoothness.   All Classic blanks are 3 piece and available in natural clear glass, yellow glass. Painted blanks in translucent brown or olive green are also available for an additional $50.00 US.

EPIC now has FASTGLASS II models available in limited colors.  I have two 686's, 4pc in 6wts - one is in SALSA and one in OLIVE - the surface finish is "Snake Belly" which is created by partially sanding the blank after curing the cloth resins and then finishing the blank in a gloss final coat.  The FASTGLASS II models have the same actions as the originals or in some cases even better. More of the original colors will be available as the year progresses. 

These Fiberglass rods are in high demand from the supplier so expect delays in rod completion for "Out of Stock" models.

 

The EPIC varienty of Colors are not what they used to be. Very limited now to the following:   Amber; Olive; Salsa in various length & line weights  - as of now, no more NUDE glass which is a shame - it was the perfect palette to build on.
