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.

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!

That´s sad, but I am sure that Orvis will manage that and that you will get a new rod. Don´t worry
