Buzzcatcher - I've been fishing Shimanos for 10 years. Great reels.Send to Shimano directly address is on web site. I sent a reel back that locked up after 5 years of use and they replaced a $100 reel for $20.
NoDid you guys fill out the warranty paper and send it in when you first bought your equipment?
St Croix replaced two of my rods for $100.00. Together they were worth $300.00.I have a broken St. Crox rod as well. We will see how they handel it.
Yea, I get you on this, BUT I do love my Tekota's. BUTTA SMOOTH.At the prices they charge for some of their stuff they owe each of you two or three more rods and reels at no charge.
