My boy and I wanted to try a different rod. So we bought ours from Academy. Long story but he broke his tip off his Lew rod. So we was headed to the hill country to my buddies place. So We stopped at a Academy and took his rod back. Heck I told the guy I didn't like the rod action. So we grabbed us the Duckett rods. My boy is off for Christmas break and he went fishing with his buddy. (pond fishing) He called me and said my rod eye came loose. I told him I have rear on TFF that happened. So looks like we head back to Academy tomorrow evening. We fish about 2-3 times a week, mostly pond bass fishing. Kinda wanting another brand rod in the 100.00ish price range. What do you recommend?

Two trips and two broken rods? Sounds like he might need to use an Ugly Stick... noidea

You might take a look at the Falcon Bucoo. Nice rod for the money.

Nah, we got them the 2nd week of November and we fish 2-3 times a week. So they got a few cast on them fish. We 1st started out with Ugly Sticks. I had used Ugly Sticks for year. But my teenage boy got into fishing and as much as he LOVE to fish. It was time to get whatever he thought was good for us. 1st broken the tip off the Lew's then the 2nd rod the eye came loose on the Duckett.

Do they sell them at Academy? We buy our rod from there cause of the return policy. thumb

"WHEN & IF" I buy a rod off the shelf, I inspect it thoroughly to make sure some jack-wagon or his little kid hasn't beat the [censored] out of the tip against something. I see it happening all the time. In fact I had a guy just Monday night slap me across the back with a cheapy combo at Bass Pro.

While were talking about Academy---If you are buying a rod pay attention to the tag. I saw one Academy that had several Lew's rods on the shelf that were sold as Tournament Lazer combos that had the reels removed. If a person is not aware of it could be paying $149.99 for a rod that is actually sold for less than $50 alone.

Its prolly not the rod. Its the idiots that handle the rods in the store. I was in Academy the other day and 2 little kids were whipping each other with rods.
As far as Ducketts go, I drop shot with them and have had the same 2 rods for years now and never had an issue.

They do not sell them at academy, but TFO has outstanding customer service and stands by their products warranty's without a hitch. Bass Pro carries them

Only twice have I felt like the rod company "might" have been at fault and they were, imo, sub-standard rods to begin with that I thought I would try out.
Eyes and tips, I rewrap or glue another on. Rod snaps due to something dumb that I've done....I own it and go buy another one.

Learn how to fix eyes. It's a simple cheap fix actually. Yes it's a pain to buy a new rod and have an eye come out but I have some rods that lose eyes occasionally. The rod itself is solid.

Bought a Duckett from Academy and the EXACT same thing happened to me! I went to the mojos and bucoos and haven't had a problem.
