I really don't get it, these rod breakage/rod warranty threads, so many people reporting poor performance, and not only FTU Green but plenty other well-respected brands as well.

I'm 64 and been fishing since I could walk. I fish hard and do not baby my tackle, although I am also careful not to abuse it. I fish lots of days in lots of places that requires transporting my tackle via automobile, airlines, and of course, in boats. I ran a fishing charter business for eleven years and hauled average three clients on 100- to 120-charters per year.

In my entire career I can only recall breaking three or four rods in what I would call normal fishing activity. My charter clients might have broken a similar number. So I simply have to ask...what the heck are you guys doing to your rods?

That is what I was told when I bought mine but it is not what happened when I went to exchange a broken rod. Good luck with that.

I haven't broken very many. At least not without something happening to it that is outside of it's normal use. But it happens. I have had 2 or 3 brand new rods break that just flat out had something wrong with them. I've broken a few others that were not a manufacturing or component issue.

I think the issue comes from overpromising on rod warranties and then not being willing to deliver. Don't promise something unrealistic or unsustainable and then go back on the super incredible warranty you used to sell the rod when the customer brings a broken rod in.

When FTU had the lifetime warranty it was taken advantage of by people that would go buy a rod and then decide they didn't like the action so they would break it and take it back for a different action. Don't think it didn't happen because some of the people on this site would come in here and brag about it. That's why companies have a hard time with warranties when you have what I will call low life's trying to take advantage of something. I used green rods and had one break while fighting a fish and they replaced it no problem.

Yep, green rods are junk and they're heavy.

I bought mine before the "Specialty Rod Craze" at least ten years ago, maybe more.
First one the tip was broken, something I did I'm sure and they replaced it, no questions asked.
2nd time I had my wife with me and I tried to cast into the wind around her and hooked the top of backrest and the rod snapped halfway down the shaft.
Took it in GF store and a lady manager came over with a new rod and gave me a receipt that said this would be the last one for free. Don't know what the receipt was for since I wouldn't use it if I had to go back and replace the rod.
