RE:The ultimate fishing expedition...
I can't help but wonder how you end up breaking a rod away from the ferrule unless the rod was nicked or just poorly constructed. I have blown up a couple of rods by horsing fish but always the break was at the ferrule. I figure T&T would not care quite as much about a ferrule break but a break in the rod that looks bad. You would think that with a bit of Photoshop they could have tidied the picture up.
