I am returning all 12 of mine.

I love the cold water reels so I bought the rods to go along from seven foot down riggers to 8'0" and 8'6" lead core and the 9'0" dipsys I am a charter Captian that specializes in atalantic Salmon they feel great in your hands they fight well and that's about it. I have had three break in a week while fighting fish. None of my rods are over a year old. I bring them in every night and they are stored on a Okuma rack. I would not recommend purchasing them they are breaking like matchsticks when you spend around a hundred dollars for a rod you expect to get your cash out of them. These suck.

I bought five of these for trout and salmon downrigger fishing on Lake Ontario. 4 of 5 snapped in half just above the ferrule while fighting fish or releasing line from the rigger. They obviously have a design flaw. I am now replacing them with Ugly Sticks.

I have had mine for 6 years now they are great. All the people complaining about breaking them obviously don't care of there stuff. They are carbon fiber if you ding them they will break just like any fly,switch or Spey rod.
They do break!

For those of you that say that those the complain of breaking rods because of lack of care are full of it. These rods break no matter how well you maintain them. Might be a quality control issue, but I had one fail in my horizontal rod holder on my boat while traveling to my fishing spot. My 10 other rods didn't have a problem with it. Even one other Freshwater has survived multiple seasons in the same holder. You just can't count on them.
