just got off the horn with Sage, my SP has been in the repair que for 4 weeks now, should be a couple more weeks... now the kicker... my rod has a "golden ticket" serial number starting with QRS, back in the 90's when these were made, in order to compete with other rod manufacturers, Sage offered a lifetime "no questions asked" warranty. So they are repairing the rod for free.
This was a rod that I got from TU when I signed up for a Lifetime membership.
THE COLORADO RIVER IS IN CRISIS, AND IT'S GETTING WORSE EVERY DAY
>>>The Colorado River is in crisis — one deepening by the day. It is a powerhouse: a 1,450-mile waterway that stretches from the Rocky Mountains to the Sea of Cortez, serving 40 million people in seven U.S. states, 30 federally recognized tribes and Mexico. It hydrates 5 million acres of agricultural land and provides critical habitat for rare fish, birds and plants.
For this summer's water forecast, climate experts are looking back to winter
>>>n the middle of a parched summer in the arid West, any amount of rain can feel like a gift. But in reality, those precious summer showers barely move the needle when it comes to water.
"Regardless of what you get in the summer," said Becky Bolinger, Colorado's assistant state climatologist, "what really impacts the water availability in the Colorado River is what happens in the winter."
As a drought-stricken region looks ahead to the summer, climate scientists are keeping an eye on high-mountain snowpack and its path to streams and rivers. Snow at high altitudes makes up the majority of the water in the Colorado River – where this past winter has left low totals. On top of that, warm temperatures and dry soil mean that snow is likely to melt early and soak into the ground before it can get to the Colorado River.
