Looking forward here also. Thanks for the info on the warranty. I had read where you wrote that before, I had check there site and they talked about receipt. After checking again I realized this was the rods with 5 yr warranty.
Off Topic: In the past Roc I think it was was talking about hooks. I got a mess of lures last weekend that I want to replace hooks on. Many of these did not and do not have split rings. I know of the open eye VMC hooks but my local store does not have them. The guy at the store said I can cut the VMC eye and then bend on. Is this true? I think I will look more or send for the hooks unless I here otherwise. Are the closed eye VMCs made with the same metal as the open eye ones? I need to do alot of these I must have got about 20 to 30 lures, well more but that's the ones I will use and the ones that need hooks. I filled a 3 tray tackle box and still have more that wont fit, I only paid $10 for these although they are mostly the older style Rebels and Repalas, with many of them never used. Did get a few CC striper strikes, a CC Pikie and several Bombers Longs and Magnum size. I don't know what to do with all of these as I just filled another box the week or so before with new stuff.
I did miss out on a huge sale in NY a couple weeks ago, a guy a know did very well as got a mess of nice wood stuff. He said they easily had 500 plus lures along with about 50+ rods and even more reels. If you want I can keep you posted if I see any more coming up.
Picture below of some of the stuff, I have another box, also got 4 old tackle boxes mostly filled with crap but they do have some good hooks, bunch of copper spoons and a mess of sinkers I'm melting. I think I did allright also got a unused Ugly Stick BWS 11'($20), used St. Croix Premier 7'6"($20) and a Penn 704z($20)
Sorry for this long post but I'm so happy
