How many rods have you broken on a hookset?

Recommended Posts

Just curious.......

I have broke my fair share and then some.  I feel like I take pretty good care of my equipment and shouldn't break as many.  I have a "real" hookset, but nothing out of the ordinary....

discuss please ;D

Just broke my first in a tournament this weekend.  I was flipping in the middle of a grass bed and set the hook on a log I couldn't see.  Loomis FSR904X IMX... I used the Xpeditor service for the first time this morning.

Zero times on a hookset. I do use mostly mono which is pretty stretchy. Now, folks that use mostly braid might have more problems ....

I did break a section of a 5-piece pack rod (with metal ferrules) back in the 1960s while taking it apart...only time I recall breaking a rod.

None, and I have a "real" hookst as you say as well, but I can name you other stupid things I have done to break rods. Most of them standard idiotic fare, the truck door/window/tailgate, rod locker lids, stepped on when on the boat deck, ceiling fan, front door of the house, dead lifting big fish into the boat, and more................

1...Q's KVD Signature Series spinning rod. Broke it in half, just past the first guide. 21" 6# Larry. Top half of the rod slid down into the water, following the fish. It took awhile (once I got past the shock of the rod snapping) to land the bass. Mixed emotions - I was excited and ticked off at the same time. I had the BPS insurance, so they took it back. Needless to say, I went another route and stayed away from the Marketing Monkey.

None for me too. So far, so good. The only time I swing for the fences is when I am batting.  ;D ;)

None. I broke one lifting a small bass over some shoreline weeds (cheapo Dick's F&S rod) and I broke a fly rod a couple weeks ago in mid-cast. Second trip out with that rod and it just snapped in half, about 4" above the ferrule.
