LOOP replaced the tip section of my rod, well beyond the warranty period....$60, no questions asked. Can't complain about that.I have to agree with Brian on this one. No offense to the OP, but a 'lifetime' warranty that was EVER offered by rod manufacturers is why we have thousand dollar ++ rods today. What an insane marketing strategy. Once one did, they all had to fall in line. Step on it? Slam it in a door? Find it on the highway after leaving it on the roof? No effing problem. A 3 year warranty would certainly cover Any mfg defects. Hit the tip with a weighted fly and you will cause a stress riser that will eventually cause a 'mfg defect'! Boeing sells jets that sell for 100's of million dollars and we only had a 20 year warranty. NO one here can dispute that the lifetime warranty on rods has been seriously abused.
