Lol this has happened on the hooksets both times! Did y'all not watch the video?
Watching the video I am amazed you have any rods that are NOT broken. The way you are boating your fish, you are putting all the stress on one point of the rod, and a point designed to be rigid and not bend.
That said, you can't see how your buddy's rod broke in the video. A broken rod on the first fish is an anomaly no matter how you are handling it.
