I'm not liking shakespeare as much as i used too. let me explain, a few months ago i broke an uglystik :crazy: no problem they have a warranty:embarassed:. so i call them and explain that i bought the rod from a shop that was going out of business and i had my my bank statement to prove that. i was told too bad no reciept na warranty no problem a after explaining what happened to a friend of mine that owns a baitshop he said he"ll take care of it 2 weeks later he calls me and says he has a new rod for me i decided i'd pay for the new and keep the old one(spare rod parts) and register for the warranty on the new one. now here's where the love ends in order to be covered by the warranty i have to send the reciept(no problem) and 7.50 for a 5 year warranty on a rod that was made in china? what happened to them standing behind their product? thats why i only have 1 shakespeare thank god okuma and allstar(imagine that shakespeare bought them a couple of years ago) don't act like this.
