Default Shimano compre rod warranty?

I bought a shimano compre rod ($99.00) 1 month ago brand new at the local tackle store. Yesterday I went fishing with it for the 4th time. While it was n the floor of the boat, 3" broke off the end for no obvious reason. I was the only one on the boat. Last night I took it and had the tip replaced so I could continue fishing today. This morning I was tying a leader on it and anothe 4" broke off the end with 2 eyes on it. After I went fishing this morning I took it to the local tackle store where I bought it and they told me I need to send it back to shimano. So I called shimano, they said it probably want be covered under any kind of warranty, burnt can send it to them if I want to. Or I. An go ahead and pay another $50 and they will send me another rod..... I have to say I have never had problems with rods breaking especially not $100 rods...... Does all of this sound right to y'all??? I have to say I'm pretty pissed off at this point.

There is a reason I get mine custom made at this point, and that's all I'm going to say about that, after having similar experiences
