The reason it is sitting in the corner, it broke off 8" down from the tip, playing around checking drags while sitting at dock the day before the first offshore trip. Checked 11 rods that way, got to 12 pounds on it and it snapped, it was a 40 (60) 100 pnd rod Definitely a defective rod, but they can keep those pieces of garbage.

Before any body goes on about the correct way to check a drag, I was making sure nothing strange happened to the drags through the winter, they were all in the fighting station getting checked that way, only the Seeker couldn't take half of what cheap Harley rods could
