Salvage Rod

Recommended Posts

I cut out the serial number section of my Duckett for warranty. Is any parts of the rod salvageable or should I just throw it away?

The guides for repairs. The blank for inner and outer sleeves for repairs or for rod extensions. You could cut it 18"-24" from the tip and make an ice rod. Lots of options for broken rods. I have a whole garbage can full of them for just such emergencies!

This is from a few years ago. My collection has grown since then.

How can you use a blank for a repair?

I threw the rest of the rod away. I started thinking about it and thought that it would be dishonest to use the rod since the company does not require yot to ship the entire rod, which saves me money be not shipping a larger package, to them to stop you from doing this, and since they are repairing it for just shipping cost I did not want to cheat the company.

I appreciate your desire to be honest, but I really cannot see an ethical problem if you comply with the company's warranty rules and the rules don't include a statement requiring the rod to be scrapped.  In other words, if the company doesn't ask you to trash the rod it should be yours for what ever you want to use it for.

 

The O'Quinn method of sleeving rods works very well; I've repaired three and they work fine.

 

One neat thing you can do with scrap rods is fit a fly swatter into the blank about a foot up from the grip.  Any pontoon boater would love to have one.

Good ideas. I do not see anywhere that says that. I tried to throw away the rest, but it is still next to the trash can. I cannot bring myself to do it.
