Default Re: TFO warranty

Oh, I absolutely agree that there can be production/design flaws that cause failure. My point was, and I probably did a poor job of specifying it, that if a rod is going to fail due to a flaw it will do so almost immediately, or very soon in its first fishing session. A break that occurs after repeated use is almost always user error....though few of us like to admit it.

The BVK is a good casting rod, not a robust rod, as has been pointed out. If you want a tough as nails rod that casts like a bullet, albeit a bit heavy, get a TFO TiCrX or an Axiom. TFO has addressed this issue with their new Mangrove rods. They gave them the Titanium coating that is found on the TiCrX to make them more resistant to incidental damage. I cast them at both the Somerset and the Lancaster Fly Show, and I think they are better than the BVK.....just my $.02.
