It will never be the same rod if you fix it with that much missing.

.02¢ from a rod builder.... ;)

A break that far into the tip action and repaired would change the action to extra, extra, fast tip plus make the rod super tip heavy. Just taking a tiptop and adding it to the broken spot would change the tip action to extra fast. The power (backbone) of the rod would change to heavy.....

Time to get another...

Good Luck & Tight Lines!!!

Welcome to the club, I broke my bps finesse caster last week, broke about 12" off..my fault. The sad part, it was new, never landed a fish with it.. ;)

So ...your sayin bps will replace my rod free..?

Any house brand rod will be replaced by the respective store....no questions asked.

Yep, BPS stands behind their products very well.  Take it in and they will exchange it for a new one.

Later, ;)

As long as you have the receipt they will replace it and of course the remaining piece of the rod. I had a similar experience with Cabelas rod and it was replaced no questions asked.

They replaced one for me but I had the receipt and it was within 1 year. After that I do not know. Show up with the rod they do not need the bad press or a dissatisfied customer. Their customer service as BPS is excellent.

Well, I'll start with a disclaimer: Make all purchases with a BPS VISA.

I have never had a problem, receipt or not, "Could you look it up for me?"

;D ;D
