I keep seeing all these mentions of rod breaking. I think I have broke maybe 8 in my lifetime. All 8 were my own fault too. From cheap ones to high ends ones I just have not had any break from fishing them despite heavy use in heavy cover at times.

Broke 3 at the same time in my truck door when the wind caught the door as I was putting them in it. Broke 3 more from rod locker mishaps. Broke one that a 1/2 oz tungsten weight hit just above the handle as I was pulling a snag free. Last one I broke when I stowed my TM.

3. Closed one in a door, broke one trying to get unhung, and broke an inch off the tip of another. Tip was wedged in the back of my graph somehow and it broke.

Three. Two in a car door and one in a ceiling fan. Never broke one on a fish. That may say more about my fish than the rod.

Broke my cranking rod last month thinking I could boat flip a 15 pound catfish. I was wrong. And one in the ceiling fan. Two in rod locker lid. And one in car door. So 5 total within the last 2 or 3 years

One, my fault: Stepped on the tip of an Academy Tournament Choice--it broke just below the top guide.
