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 ?????
