ROD WARRANTY
I wanted to thank Cabelas for making their ROD’s have a life time warranty. I normally fish with around four to five rods when I go fishing. Just depends on the situation I’m in. Bass Pro tells me you have to pay extra for a 2 year warranty. You would think a store which sells primarily fishing gear would have a much better plan for their rods…anyways I had a rod snap after 3 years. I went to Cabelas the other day and they gave me a brand new rod with no questions asked. Bass Pro tells me after 1 year they cannot fix or replace my rod because I did not pay the 8 dollars for the extra warranty… Anyways besides Cabelas does anyone know any other store in Louisiana who has a life time warranties or more than 5 years besides CabelasBecause If not I’m sticking with Cabelas. Thumbs up to Cabelas!

I build custom rods and really like the MHX Blanks.. they have a life time warranty on the workmanship of the blank only so they do not cover issues like breaking it in a car door or something.. and it only replaces the blank not the cost to rebuild it..
You need to stick with Cabelas.. you can't beat that kind of service..

after 3 years of use a break in the rod cant be attributed to a manufacturer's defect. Good that they offer that warranty service but no rod company can stay in business with a lifetime rod warranty. I fish exclusively with shimano rods and have had to send two rods back and they replaced both rods no charge. only cost was shipping it to them. I was fully expecting to pay something for the service but got lucky i guess.

I understand that most companies can not have a life time warranty but at least some type of compensation for a period of years! Now if its a 40$ rod then that is understandable. But if I'm gone to spend 150$ on a rod, then that is another story. Especially for Guides!I'm sure their customers all of the time break rods....
