Second post, first time here. Though at times I have my reservations, Cabelas Rocks! I busted the tip of a rod past the first guide. this was a POS starter rod but I liked the soft action! Three years after purchase I called and asked about getting it repaired. They asked I send it to them (Just the rod, not the tube etc.) and they would be in touch. Viola! a 10days after I shipped, I received a new rod complete with new rod tube and sock.
So as I say, for various reasons I occasionally have reservations. In sum,
they done good by me.
