I heard a dirty rumor that Gloomis is the first rod company to close down the liberally generous free rod for life warranty program? Interesting that their costs are still on par with the likes of Sage and Winston, who are all still offering an amazing no questions asked warranty at that price point. What gives? Do you guys think gloomis stands a chance? I have to admit that I'm clumsy enough and have also had legitimate breaks that were covered under Sage's exceptional warranty. I don't think I'm brave enough to buy a Gloomis. Based on my experiences with Sage - I'm a customer for life. Do you think the other rod makers will follow suit?
