Re: Warranty on Winston rods?
Companies will warranty ebay sales, as long as the seller is an authorized dealer, and the rod has never been sold before. Companies don't care how you advertise. Ebay is no different than using a web site.
Demos are a bit different. If it was sold to the dealer as a demo, then no warranty. However, a lot of dealers take normal rods that they didn't buy as demos and use them as demos. Those rods will have warranties.
What you have to look out for is a rod with someones name on it. That will never have a warranty except to the person with their name on the rod. It could be a customer who had it done, but more than likely it's an owner/employee/sponsored person who got the rod at a huge discount, and isn't meant for them to turn around and sell it at a profit.
