Good news-Bad news. Custom rods can be wonderful things (like Gary Anderson's out of Rogue River Oregon). But bust one and you're in deep do-do. Manufacture will replace the section of the blank, you just have to hope like heck the builder is still in business and wants to back a warranty.
Fellow broke the butt section (at ferrel) of my old 7136-4. Sage had no problem with the new piece ... but it cost me (with shipping) almost $150 for the new butt section built.
All the savings of a 'custom' rod went right down the drain and then some.
Live and learn.
