I try to take care my stuff but I've now broken the tips off of 3 or 4 Duckett micro magic pros. The rod box lid got a couple but the others were just gently removed from the rod box and had broken tips.

Suggestions for sensitive spinning rods under $200? I use mine for top water and (mainly) finesse worm fishing. So sensitivity and workable tip is what I value.

Thanks.

I've NEVER had any trouble with my Duckett rods, but I never put them in a rod box, not sure if that's what's causing them to break.

I've never broke any of mine,but I have bent some of the guides before. I removed all my rod tubes and brackets in both my rod boxes and changed to the slick rod socks(Falcon).

I made a 100% switch to Dobyns rods and have never looked backed. They are super versatile, lightweight and they have a series for each budget and all are awesome. If you want a good rod at a great price and a man and a company that stands behind them, get a dobyn's

I have never broke the tips, but I did bend the third eyelet down, when I went to straighten it broke off
pretty easily.

I use rod gloves. and have not put them in the rod box.
They stay in the garage till I am ready to do, then back in
the garage when I get back home.

I sure hope there is not an issue with these rods, as I have seven of them.
Would hate to have to swap them out.
