Mainly pitching a T-rig around. I was swinging in about a 4lber and broke off about 6" of the last Cara I bought. Of course it probably had some deck abuse.
Falcon will give you a new one.
I would reach to falcon. Not sure if swinging a fish will be covered. However, you can send in the broken rod or part of it to get a discounted replacement. I think it's $80.
Each Falcon rod is warranted against defects in manufacturing and/or materials. In addition, we offer an "out of warranty replacement policy" where you can replace your damaged rod at a reduced cost. Please contact us at email@example.com with any questions. Please note, accidental damage like stepped-on guides and crushed blanks from car doors is not the result of a defect and will not be covered under warranty. Proof of purchase is required for all warranty claims at the time of the claim.
They are usually pretty good about it. If you just send in the rod they typically will replace it.
