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.

EPIC now has FASTGLASS II models available in limited colors.  The new surface finish is what they call "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 beautiful actions and cast like you are in a dream.

These Fiberglass rods are in high demand from the supplier so expect delays for any models I don't have in stock. 

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