I did, I ordered an Abu Garcia rod and it came broken. Sent it back and the replacement came broken. Sent it back and drove to BPS.

I’ve ordered a couple of St Croix rods on Amazon that were fine, If I remember correctly they came in a heavy cardboard tube with some bubble wrap inside.

I went ahead and gave it a try anyway. Amazon returns are easy if needed. Will find out tomorrow.

I didn't buy 7 footers, but the ones I did buy came in heavy cardboard tube as well, no issues.

I bought a 7'4 off of amazon a couple years ago with amazon rewards points. They basically made a small 8' long tent out of a bunch of pieces of cardboard and taped it all together. It looked terrible, but it did the job, the rod showed up in perfect condition.

My history with Amazon (real good one).
Couple years ago bought 4 12' 2 pc rods ($120 each).
All came in a great sturdy cardboard tubes.
One though came with factory defect.
And instead of sending it back for replacement, seller just sent me another (good) one.
I managed to fix this broken one (not to "perfect" but working condition), and now use it for free, courtesy of Amazon! smile
