    my BIL broke a 10 wt Helios in 3 pieces on a tarpon. We lost several pieces but Orvis replaced it no problem.

    Sensi, for guys like you with a heavy hand (LOL), there are rods with a warranty. More money up front but just send back the tip with a little cash and get a new section.

    I know you probably know this, but just trying to help a sniffer out.

    Best,
    Here they come!

    Welp Snapped my 6 weight

    NO JOKE! Just snapped my 6 weight at the mouth of georgiana slough and Sacramento river. Something bit my orange thingamabobber indicator and then i had to induce a hookset which did hit but bam my $#` snapped after trying to hip it so i know it had to have been a monster catfish. I dont know if i should be mad or excited? 2nd rod snapped in 2 weeks. Getting expensive now says my wife next fly shop adventure. Imma pick up a new method rod and start acting like smeegle. :P at least i get another extra reel added to my set.......
