Fuckers won't upgrade me on the replacement of my TiCr then will only give me $175 credit towards a new rod .... :;!

$175?????
I thought that was one of their better rods?

They said 1) my Ti Rc has been discontinued and 2) they changed policy on the upgrade to an equivalent rod! Fuckers!

Just to make you feel better...As much as i want to like Lefty''s company ive spent the equivalent on shipping and repairs to justify a next tier rod, the old stuffs rocked, new stuff breaks like hell IMO...i bought their musky rod and it broke when i stripped line off the top guide...

Yes! Shamed the bastards into replacing the rod for the $35 fee.... BVK on the way today.... I've heard good and bad things about this rod but I think it will fit my casting style better than the others...

must of finally realized their warranty wasn't sustainable

Can't wait to see how fast an albie breaks that BVK

I know the BVK is supposed to be a bit tender.  My six weight Mangrove however has wrangled many a big carp with no issues yet.

I use those cheap lefty "professional" series rods in the mountains just because of the warranty, but if they are going to change it i don't really see any reason to use them anymore.  they are kind of shit rods.

wasnt there a forum member years ago that worked for TFO?  tranny was friends with him i think.

Scott I believe was his name, TXfly username.  Not sure if he worked for TFO, or helped design one of their fly rods.
