Ever had a rod..

Out fishing shell on an outgoing with a buddy and caught a fair fish and little later later had a bump and set the hook and the FTU grey rod broke about a ft above the handle like a gun shot on a shell fish.

Seen my share of tips and such break but not like this.

Have you ever had one break like this?

I have had tips break and

I broke two G.Loomis in similar fashion. Really sucks.

You probably had a little ding there.

this happen's??
then when you go to try to get the blank covered by the warrenty you will get at least a dozen ""what might have happened or this is why"" the bottom line is this the dang thing simply broke ??
yes there is a reason my personal thought's is ""quality control during assembly"" now just what does this mean, i am noy reel sure just what it mean's for a fact but if you are turning out 100's of blank's per hr & your job entail's doing a certain thing during that process & you are just an employee what is say that you screw up & don't do something right or you miss a step & rather than go back to correct your error you just fix it & continue??
well this mean's that how many blank's missed that "priority step" or check point or just what ever it might have been & some blank's get over looked & shipped who's ever gonna know??
so i don't think it's totally a **** rod blank because my guy's tell me they hear it from the high dollar blank's as well, the more the blank cost it seem's the thinner the outer wall now this i am sure is something that will get a big debate on but all i am saying is, i just don't think you can grade a rod by a break like that.
it is like my self i am 73 & i am in good shape so far & i just had a friend that was 50 that had a major hart attack "dead" yes it is genes but that same thing goe's for why did this rod break at the grip almost ???
because iy just did ?????

This has happened to me. I snapped a high end custom rod the exact same way in the exact same spot. It happens... Just the cost of fishing.

Ya, A buddy of mine from here StevieRay bought a new CCA Redfish Rod from Academy awhile back and the first slot Red of the day on a jig the rod broke about 12" above the reel in the middle of the fight. He took it back no prob though and got an Allstar I think.

I still have an old orig alstar prm in the garage that never broke over the years.

The FTU rod is at least 8 months and several trips on it.

I got smart several years ago and bought an assortment of tips and can fix one on the fly but this is the first one that I have seen break other than the first tip to 6 inches off the tip.

You can fix it with hot glue and a wood dowel that is the correct size to slide inside the blank and patch the two pieces back together.

You may have to trim the dowel a little to get a good fit, but its better than trashing it and will make a good back-up rod or beginner rod for the kids.

Call me crazy but I have heard of this a lot more with higher end rods(Gloomis especially) becuase they use a higher module, higher qaulity graphite. This gives the rod a higher sensativity in a lighter package. Downside is they are more brittle.

Kinda like a high grade steel knife that will hold a edge better than a low carbon cheap blade. But if you use the good steel to pry you will snap your blade.

Just like anyting else it is a give and take relationship, you cant have something without looseing something else.

On the other hand the company should stand behind their product and understand things like that happen.
Good Luck
