Question for Batson

Recommended Posts

If I trim a new blank, from the butt end, is the warranty void?

Technically yes it would void the warranty as it does change the action of the blank and moves the “pressure” points when under load from where it was originally designed.

But if something does happen we’ll still take care of you and at the very least offer a discounted rate on a replacement.

thanks for the quick reply, and the very nice offer.

The reason I asked is I have a guy who wants me to quote four rods built on the new Eternity blanks. A 6'2", a 6'6", a 6'9" and a 7'.

I've had a couple more talks with this guy, and I'm starting to think his cheese has slipped off his cracker.

I'll likely back away from this project.

Well, I just bought two of your new Eternity blanks and a sackful of F series titanium frame guides from Anglers Workshop. I will not be trimming these. LOL

Stress test the blanks before you trim or build. Any defect will show up then and can be addressed. Later on, there would be contributing factors i.e. Handling, high sticking etc to any fracture.

I've got to finish up an OG ETEC72MH that's beenalmost done for months...

Then I gotta start a new verseion ETEC72MH :-)  

Let me know what you think of them!  They both seem fantastic, can't wait to get some on the water time with them.

These two are not for me, so I won't get any fishing time with them. I'm impressed so far. Light, crisp, very straight and a neat subtle finish; a huge improvement over the previous blue painted version, at least in the looks department.

I'll agree that i prefer the finish.  But now that I've stripped a couple of the old versions, I kinda like that blue/raw transition look.  Grass is always greener right? :-)

So far the early reviews on the new Eternity's is positive, with the few that have fished them.

Are these Kent's, lololol!  He is going a little nuts.  You hear he bought a Daiwa?

You got it! A 7'6" jig/worm rod, and a 6'8" jerkbait stick for brother Kent. I'm really liking that 6'8" blank. That will probably be the next blank I build for myself. After these two for Kent, I have three more in the queue. Then I can think about my next personal stick.

He told me bought a Daiwa. I almost asked to whom am I speaking! LOL The sheriff of the Shimano posse, with a Daiwa? Is nothing sacred?

 

The four rods I mentioned earlier in this thread are not for Kent. This was a local guy who wanted those. I told him there would be no warranty on three of them, so he backed off. I didn't have to.

Be sure to put on the protective coating so the Diwawa doesn't corrupt the rod!  Should I store the reel in a lead box in a different room?

As long as you wear appropriate protection, the reel will be okay.

I'm still marinating your bearings, btw.

John, you'd best put some of the "special" Daiwa magic lube in that reel. It's gonna be hangin out with a whole flock of shimanews.

Just keep it away from those no no's. Don't worry about the rods, I've yet to build a rod that didn't fall in love with my Daiwas

The "special" Daiwa lubes are actually made by Shimano.....
