I've been throwing a small frog, a padcrusher jr, on the 7'1 MH Gen 1 Omen Black rod. When I set the hook on a fish that's bigger than around 4 lbs, I can feel some unusual flex in the blank, directly under the reel foot. It feels like it's gonna snap to be honest, and in a very strange place.
I've heard the stories of them breaking on folks, luckily I haven't experienced that yet. But it seems most of those complaints were the rod breaking in the last 12" or so.
So has anyone broke one at the reel seat or felt the odd flexing there?

Edit Reason: rod length
