I'm not going to lie, I left the crickets and birds chirping soundtrack from that website on for like fifteen minutes while I was laying on the couch and I brought it back up when I closed the tab. Looks like quite the peaceful place!

guys and gals ...went fishing this morning and was to make a video....when we arrived on the water I let my friend JM fish for a while before asking him to make the video and started fishing with the rod...It casted great...unfortunately I slipped on a rock ....and broke the rod in three parts bad luck!!!I was really angry and sad but it's better than to break a leg...so You'll have to wait till I build a new rod

What happened with the unconditional warranty? Did you forget to fill out your warranty card???

More importantly, play any fish on the rod before it broke?

I always my best to keep my promises...so here are the videos!! this week I rebuilt the boographite rod…it’s the BG2…a bit longer…when we arrived on the water yesterday some little bows were taking emergers…so I put an Ugly Green…JM is the cameraman
Some rollcasts…a bit too short.

Let’s try a bit farther…fish on!!

A few steps upstream to get near JM…Here it is!!

Kudos to the customer service AJ!!!Rod replaced promptly by the latest one,free shipping,no question asked about how it was broken.

Good to see that it worked out for you. I wonder how your arm will feel after throwing it all day?
