Just finished this Epic 480 Nude for Mark at Alternative Tackle in the Uk. This understated build features my radiused style downsliding signature seat with a gorgeous walnut insert, nickel silver black agate and classic snake guides, a super polished nickel silver minimalistic winding check and classy strap&ring hook keeper. Handle is a modified cigar shape with a bit of flare that offers great support and a bit slimmer is comfortable casting all day. I did test cast this rod on grass and feels really sweet. Thanks for looking!
