I like Cabela's as a first class company. I buy a lot of equipment from them. I, instead of buying a finished rod, I buy their kits. Have built about five of their FT rods. I just broke an FT eight weight. I guess it happens. No questions asked, I just sent it back and it was replaced including all the components right down to the glue! My shipping back to them was paid by them. I replaced it with an eight weight ten foot SLi which I had built before, and had lost the rod. It is a little more expensive than the FT, and a little softer. Cast it all day with little fatigue. I should have it built before the indoor casting clave, and will bring it. Hope I can post this.
