So I have a sweet little Reddington CT 3 wt that I just love. Last week, the tip broke off about 1" as I was pulling it out of the case.
This rod is covered by Reddington's lifetime warranty. To get warranty work done, I have to ship it to WA at my expense, and also include a check for $30 to cover return shipping. Right now, I can buy the same rod new at Cabela's for $100.
So my question is this: am I better off repairing the tip and using it as is, or do I pay ~$50 to get warranty work on a $100 rod?
"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."
