sorry, but taking care of your gear is your own responsibility
If warrenties were not so good, more people would be more carefull with their rods, and we would all be paying less for them. I have busted one fly rod in my whole life. Knock on wood. Hooked a tree behind me trying to bomb a long cast with high tight space behind me. Shouldn't even have tried to cast there with a single hand rod. It was dumb.
Laying a rod on the ground or the floor is asking for disaster. Unless you bring Orange cones and caution tape. A cautionary tale for those of us who don't want a busted rod.
