Default Raptor Rod Works Repair Service

My son-in-law had an older Powell 6wt 4 piece that had a break in the top of the 3rd section. Oregonsteel recommended that I contact Jim Clarkson over at Raptor Rod works. This was a very nice American made rod that we were not really interested in trading for a overseas built rod plus $100 warranty fee. Well I have to say Jim did an awsome job and she is ready for the upcoming trip to the North Platte. If you are in need of a rod repair I highly recommend checking him out.

Wanted to update my report on the rod. The repair job looked very nice but until I had it on the water is was all looks. This weekend I was able to fish it for two days hard. First I love the rod. Its casts very nice and very easily. For my casting ability it was super. The real test came into play when I hooked my first steelhead. Rod handled the runs very well and there is no signs of any failure in the repaired area. Great job by Jim at Raptor
