take it back tomorrow or Monday. They should give you a new one. Orvis has great customer service.

Well, since it broke within the 30 days, they're going to send me a new one right out. :D

Orvis is awesome for giving you new rods, you can snap it any which way you want and still get it replaced, and that just looks like a faulty rod to me

I think what really hurt the most, was that I fished all day. I didn't catch a thing until sunset. Right as I started to catch fish... snap!
