tbeez41,

Like natrix pointed out, if you bread a section of a rod you built, most manufacturers will provide you with a replacement section for under $75.00 provided you send the complete broken rod to them. All you do is rewrap and finish the new replacement section.

Now to play devil's advocate: Why on earth should a blank manufacturer or for that matter a rod manufacturer have to replace a rod or blank section for free that was broken because someone was careless and stepped on it or closed a car door, trunk lid, tailgate, garage door, or house door on it? Shouldn't such "user error" breakage or carelessness be the responsibility of the owner of the rod or blank?
