Rough year for rods

Recommended Posts

Gosh...I've gone years with out breaking any and now this year I've destroyed two in the last two weeks.  Yesterday was a flipping stick on about a 3 1/2 pound largemouth ....the other was a spinning rod on a drum.  Landed the 3 1/2 yesterday which was awesome as we came in second in a small local tourney.  Oh well....time to shop!!!  And maybe lighted up on the hookset.

Wow that is some bad luck.  The last rod I broke was about 10 years ago.  I was fishing from the bank and hung up my bait.  I grabbed the line too close to the rod tip when I tried to free my bait.  Next thing I know I had a two piece rod.

That's rough! In all my years of fishing, I had only broke 2 rods, an ultra light and another rod I had as a kid. In the last year, I've broken 3. All of those can be attributed to my front tie down cleats :/ 2 got caught under them when I picked them up and they snapped in half. The other one took a hit on the edge of it when a giant wake almost tossed me out of the boat when trying to get un-hung. I fell on the gunnel and the rod caught the edge and it peeled the clear coat up. I used it for a year and a half after with no issue, but a few weeks ago, my girlfriend was using it and said the handle felt "funny" so I took a look and sure enough it cracked.

ON, you know it comes in threes so just pick out your least favorite rod, close it in the tail gate and get it over with.

I feel your pain.  I broke a St Croix legend xtreme and a rage this year.  Good thing they have a great warranty!

I broke one BPS Carbonlite. Walked into the store, picked out a new one and walked out.  Not my overall favorite rod, but it is hard to beat the convience for me.

I didn't break any super expensive rods but I did brake one new Fenwick Eagle trying to get a lure in snagged. And I shut a rod locker door on the end of my Mojo Bass spinnerbait rod. That is actually the only rods I remember ever breaking.
