    Couple days ago I called BP and asked them about shipping charges on multiple rods if $6 for all or each, she replied 6 for each, BP ships them that way because we will damage rods send two or more. I was ok that's fine since the nearest BP is 150 miles away I would save on fuel cost. So today I recieved the first rod, shipped in a nice cardboard tube, popped open the end cap and grabbed the butt...ok nice looking rod so far, get all the way out and no tip:angry:. One would think that a .50 cent piece of bubble wrap wrapped around the tip would be a solution taking in account how much abuse packages go through when processing or maybe the fed-ex driver went fishing over his/her lunch break and hooked onto a big one. :wink:

    Yeah I called them as soon as I seen the damage they said BP would email myself acouple pre-paid labels for return(which I received), just find it ironic that of what the first lady said then bam I receive damage.

    I have to check a fishing pole out before buying, so no orders from catalogs for me.
