Blew up on a cast with a 2 1/4 oz Roberts Ranger during a bluefish blitz on Chappy. Backup rod back at the house on Edgartown. Show's over.
This is the second time I've broken this rod. I haven't even used it that much since the first time I broke it. Maybe half a dozen times.
The folks at St. Croix are great with the warranty, but I'm not sure how much I'm going to trust this rod going forward.
