It didn’t break on its own. Was due to me being a dumb@ss.

No big story. Had a jig hung up in some brush. Pushed the rod in to free it up and jammed it into a rock.

Been there - although in my case it was actually my @ss that broke it. Working through the warranty process now.

This is what St Croix wants done to it as proof that you aren't going to re-use it somehow, someway. I had to stick it under my truck tire and get some good leverage on it to break it down here.

I’ll call Loomis tomorrow to see their process. It’s like $125 to replace. Not even going to try to claim warranty even through its new.

In the future, don't use your NRX as a push-pole.

A broken NRX is a sight that might bring tears to your eye! I'm sorry for your loss.
I broke a new Megabass Destroyer boat-flipping a three pounder. Good warranty replacement process with Megabass but, it was a $150 lesson in how not to boat flip a bass. I suspect you will also learn the $150 dollar lesson.

These are the dumb posts that make the internet "fun". Just ordered another Power Tackle rod, and a huge fan. Hope it's here this week. 8 nrx's in the box, plus GLX's, and IMX's. Talked to a buddy who sat on a Power Tackle rod a few weeks ago and had a similar issue.

Having said that, Loomis will fix for a price, Power Tackle rods are great, and Minner Bucket is.........!

That’s why I keep rods to around the $150 range. Doesn’t hurt as much when you break one. I probably break about one per year. That being said I brought a $330 Waterloo rod for saltwater. That will probably make it the first broken.
