First, I love these rods & have/use 4 of them. But today I broke my 7'H on a hook set - snapped about half way down right at the guide. Have any of you had to warranty any of these rods? If so, what was your experience?

Thanks!

I sent mine back to tackle warehouse. No questions asked. Mine was about 3 months old. It broke on the backswing casting a swim jig. 7-1 or 7-3 mh broke about 1/3 down from the tip.

I had the same problem on hook set with 7'3 MH I have not taken the bait off it and it is a clean break. I have owned it for a year and a half, bought from cabela's. Really sucks cause I love this rod. Gonna call cabela's and ask for exchange.

Got my replacement today. They also included a bonus hat.
Rod broke, they stood behind it. Got a new hat for my trouble. Happy customer.

I own 5 of them.
3 - 7'1" Medium Fast - rattle traps and squarebills; they are very sensitive and just soft enough to keep fish buttoned up. Just let off the drag a bit and you will get them to the boat. The trade off for patience is a rod where you can feel every movement of the bait. Almost as good as my Pinnacle Perfecta Squarebill rod.
1 - 6'7" Medium Fast - finesses jig; very light, paired with a 5oz reel and you can pitch under docks and underbrush with ease (and practice)
1 - 7'1" Medium Heavy Fast - 6" and 7" Senkos; just starting out with this setup

Awesome to hear they stand behind them like that. These are probably the only rods I'm going to be buying for a while. . .

We sell those rods here at Bargain Hunters, and so far Bobby Allen has warrantied and stood behind everyone of those rods. Had a customer bring it back in with his receipt, gave him a new one and then Bobby came to the store to switch out the broken one. Good rods and at least one great sales rep.

Just sent mine in...... but after reading how many people are having issues, don't think I will buy another. Really like the rod though.

I've owned 6 and haven't broke one. Except for an insert that I broke from stabbing the ceiling. And don't act like y'all have never done that move smile.
