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.
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, although EPIC does have an 8' 8wt, 4pc in a nice medium blue - as of now, no more NUDE, or natural glass from EPIC which is a shame - as it was the perfect palette to build on.
