Default Is it really worth it ?

I have been fly fishing for over 40 years and I just can't understand why a 700 dollar rod is better than a 150 dollar rod.

Ok.....maybe the lifetime guarantee but that costs lots of money....maybe up to 3 or 4 times the cost to replace the rod. But.....how many rods have you broken during a lifetime of fishing? I've broken 3 in about 60 years of fishing. One was an ancient hollow fiberglass spinning rod about 50 years ago, the other a 30 dollar graphite spinning rod that I had loaned to a newbie.

I know that there is a big difference between an el-cheapo rod and a decent rod and the small difference between a decent rod (about 60 dollars) and a good rod (about 130 dollars) but I just can't fathom the difference between a 150 dollar rod and a 700 dollar rod.
