Got on the river at 9:00 this morning, started catching fish immediately. Shortly after the start of a great day, I was pulling a fish to hand and snap! I knew exactly what it was. Tip snapped on my rod. Iíve had this rod for like 17 years. Itís a sage z axis and I will be sending it to sage for repairs or a new rod. Anyone had any experience with sage customer service? Anyway, ran to the truck grabbed another rod and finished up a great day. Hope everyone is taking advantage of this nice weather.
