I am in the market for a new spinning rod and i was thinking about a carrot stik , I went to a local tackle shop to check them out and the owner told me that they were having so many problems they dropped the carrot stik line . I thought that he was full of $h!t because i've heard so many good things about them on this forum , but he had 2 examples that were waiting to be sent back , one rod the handle wouldn't hold a reel steady ( it was loose in the reel seat no matter how much it was tightend) and 3 guides were loose, the other one the tip came right off (the tip didn't break ) but the guide just slipped off

and 2 of the other guides were loose. pretty much the same problems everybody says they have w/the kistler magnesium.The store owner told me if they do what kistler did and switch to the fuji reelseat & guides he will start selling them again but until then he wants nothing to do with them.   ........... Have any of you had these problems or should i take the chance ?
