So I bought a rod off facebook and when it arrived it was broke about 12" from the tip.

Its a Shimano Compre that I only paid $60 for from an individual on facebook.

What should I do?

It was paid for using paypal if that matters.

Pretty sure you can make a claim to Paypal and they will refund your money. I would look into that.

Was there any damage to the packaging? If so deal with the shipper

I bought a few rods from a guy on this site. When they arrived everything looked ok. First cast with one of them the rod broke right in half. Talked to the seller and he refunded my money for the rod, that's how it should be. It's a [censored] shoot buying used gear, you just never know what your getting. I've pretty much decided to just buy new from now on.

If your Paypal is linked to a credit card, most of those companies will guarantee purchases bought online.
Call the customer service number and ask.

Im not sure what im going to do at this point.

Im not going to get a refund through paypal because they did nothing wrong and im not going after the seller as he also did nothing wrong.
If usps wont make it right im going to throw it in his van or on the hood next time he stops by. All he did was delivered trash to my house.

Those guys have trashed rods for me before anytime u ship rods with them buy insurance. It will
Be covered at min. 50$ so he can refund u 60$ and when claim is settled he will get back 50$ and be out some money.

Shipper has to make a USPS claim through their website. They will only give him how ever much insurance he got on package. That's all that can be done

Imagine a contractor not insuring work he performed.

I had the same thing happen in the past and the seller did not insure it and USPS could care less when or how it got broken. Mine was shipped in a PVC pipe and when it got to me the pipe was broken with part of the rod sticking out and it had been taped up with USPS tape.

I had to pay the warranty fee through Dobyns to get a new rod.
