Rod and Reel Warranty Question

Recommended Posts

When you buy a rod or reel from ebay,craigslist,the flea market, garage sale, etc. How does the warranty work? Don't you need the receipt from when you purchased it or is that only for the 5 year or 10 years warranties?

It is going to depend on the manufacturer. Some warranties, depending on the company might only apply to the first owner. I mean you can lie and say that you are the first owner and lost your receipt, but that is up to you.

if the rod is a loomis, it does not matter if you are the first or the fifteenth owner...they will replace a broken rod for $50.00...no questions asked.

shimano is generally very good, as well...as long as you send in the warranty card, they generally honor the warranty work, with or without receipt.

can't speak to the others.

break any other $200 rod 20 years from purchase and see what you get back.

outside of shimano's rod warranty, most tackle shops are gonna look at you a little funny after a year.
