How did the rod break?

I have landed a number of bluefin to 25# with my 10 and have had zero problems with it. No probems with the 9 on some large bass either. I try to be careful with them but they tend to get banged around in the boat.

I did have to send one back because a bass hit short while my ferrules were loose and it cracked the ferrule - user error.

The thin walled construction does not seem to like high-sticking as a friend found out this summer. But many high end rods are like that....
