For what's it worth.
My 2 Ghost series med. action rods lasted just over a year. Both snapped (1 on cast, 1 while lifting 2lb. fish) within two weeks of each other. My Ghost series 7' med. heavy rod still ok, but not sure for how long.
I treat/store rods with care, so I'm a pretty disappointed with the Duckett's.
I swapped both broken Ghost series at Academy for Garcia Veritas med action rods and happy with them so far.
