Fished with Shimano rods/reels for 15+ years with no complaints until Shimano changed their warranty from lifetime to one year. Decide to switch to IRods rods and Lews super duty reels last year and have no complaints! Matt Newman (owner of IRods) is an awesome angler and will take care of any issue you have!! His customer service is top notch.
I RIP LIPS!!!
