    I have a Teremar 80mh that is about a year and a half old that snapped in half while under normal load fighting a fish. It snapped just above the third guide? Knowing that the rod is out of warranty, what are my options if any? Thanks.

    I believe its a lifetime warranty. Sav On tackle handled the exchange for a $10.00 fee.

    Life time warranty. I think Shamano is in Irvine. Take it there.

    I think Fisherman's Landing Tackle will swap it out for you.

    Fishermans Landing offers the over the counter replacement. The rod warranty covers against material and manufacturer defects.

    I have a similar situation. Do you guys know of an Shimano authorized dealer in Orange County where I can do the exchange? Shimano Irvine is open only 5 days a week, M-F, from 8-5, during my working hours.

    Thanks in advance.

    Guys, high modulus graphite rods need to be cared more than glass rods. It is best if we don't bang them with weights, jigs or drop them on the floor or dump them on the back of a truck, rattle them on a boat against other rods,etc. The high graphite makes them stiffer, but not harder, and a ding on them could make them explode in 2 or 3 pieces
    When under pressure.
    Google high modulus graphite rods.
