Default Re: How many of you have broken rods while casting?

Yanno, I keep reading about rods breaking and its in the back of my mind certainly when I'm humping longer casts.
Sorry to hear about that stasher, wasn't that the one with the broke handle? Lemme know what happens.

Onto graphite, its spooky stuff- I'm an archer and have seen first hand what can happen to those stronger than steel magic shafts when an unseen flaw or nick is in it.
I broke one graphite rod when they first came popular, mid 80's- leaned heavy into a salterwater sheephead, set the hook but the line broke at very upside of my power stroke, snapped in two spots, weird, happens
hope it gets replaced promptly
