Re: Warranty on Winston rods?
You might wish to look at G.Loomis rods. Their warranty is about as good as it gets in the fly rod industry and their product has the same excellent stature. Within the G.Loomis warranty you have three choices: 1. Ship it back and ask to have it repaired or replaced after inspection ($20 + shipping to Washington); 2. $50 gets you a new rod shipped tomorrow via standard shipping, no questions asked; 3. $65 gets you a new rod shipped tomorrow, 2nd day air, no questions asked. Return to factory shipping of the broken rod pre-paid under either choice #2 or #3. Neither time that I've damaged rod to the point of needing replacement has G.Loomis asked if I was the original owner, nor did they ask for any warranty card or toss proof of purchase hassles in front of me. All G.Loomis asked was my name, shipping address, preferred shipping method, and credit card #.
