Default Re: colton rods?

I bought a blue 7wt tradewinds last year. The rod felt really light and was casting well. I broke it during the summer on a hookset of a large carp. I paid the $50 to replace it and broke it on the same day I received it with light bending.....lesson learned. I own 11 fly rods and have been fishing since I was 5 yrs old...I know what a rod should and should not be able to handle. In fact, those 2 rods are the only rods I have ever broken in my life, cheap K-mart rods included!
