Default Captain Hook Rods !!!

I am getting some crappy service on my "life time " guaranteed rod from this out fit which broke a third of the way down casting a top water. They referred me to the US manufacturer a very reputable company. The owner of the company called me personally and told me that the rod was a cheapo chinese import and he had several other similar events with rods sold by captain hook who he used to supply but no longer.Wondered if anyone esle had a similar experience .

Default Captain Hook rods break

Bought two Captain Hook rods from the builder, one rod broke last year, the other just had a rod guide break ( metal split and carbide ring fell off). This is after using the one that broke once, and the rod guide broke sitting in my garage on an unused rod.
Avoid these rods!! $200 for junk.
The builder also contacted me, the best he would do is sell me two more at a discount rate. So to get warranty I have to pay more. No thanks.
Lesson learned. Stick with Shimano or Gloomis.

Sorry you got taken. This is a good example of why you should buy from a local tackle shop, or a reputable brand from an online dealer with a brick & mortar operation as well.
