I wish some company would do that with me. I need me some green glowing rods.Give a few away to the right YouTubers that hoot and holler about how they “get the job done” and the masses will flock to you.
I didn't want to mention any of the brands because most are reputable and stand behind their products (replaced the broken rods fast from what I saw). I am quite sure quite a few people own these rods too and have pulled in big fish. It just was odd this was happening recently.First, I should point out that not knowing what brands, I am just giving an informed guess here.
I have been so abusive to my rods they should have broken a hundred times over the past few years lol!A thing few people think about is the rods were treated before you bought it. If the rod was banged around a bit either from shipping or clerks stocking...it can create micro fractures in the blank which will lead to failure sometime after purchase.
But the vast majority of broken rods is do to user error whether it's mistreatment, high sticking, or putting too much bend in the rod under load horsing a fish.
