Just wanted to send a thanks to the crew at the Bellevue Orvis...bought an 8wt Clearwater there 2 years ago and of the four times I've used it, three different sections have broken within the first 5 minutes of using it. First time I thought it was user error but after the 2nd time my thought was it was a faulty blank and the 3rd time solidified that thought. Each time I've taken it back they've sent it in to be repaired and after the 3rd time they replaced the rod with a new one. While a pain, the individuals working there never second guessed me and delivered a new piece or in the last case, a rod, within weeks and apologized for any inconvienence. Thanks Leland and crew....guess I just wanted to share.
