Default Re: Where it broke at poll

I've broken the ring off the tip-top a bunch of times. That's from not protecting the rod well enough while traveling. I'll learn some day.
I've had few rods break maybe 4 inches from the tip, either through negligence or from setting the hook too aggressively on some especially nasty vegetation.
A couple of my home rolled rods broke at the ferrule. The blank sections were matched wrong at the factory on those. Not my fault this time except for not noticing
I vote tip, but only because there wasn't an "all of the above"
