Re: is my rod breaking/defective? or is this normal? pics included
If you don't care to do it yourself, take it to a shop before you send it in.
My fishing partner is the "official" repair guy at a large urban tackle shop and is an "authorized" repair agent for a number of rod manufactures..
He does stuff like this and I'm sure other shops have similar guys.
It would cost you 5 times as much as if you did it yourself but you could save yourself some shipping cost and still have factory authorized work done even if you're not willing to do the simple repair yourself
