View Full Version : Warantee's good on used equipment?

Do the manufacturer's warantee hold true for used equipment as well as new equipment? I had one rod fixed where I never sent the original reciept and they fixed it. But I wonder about buying a used rod/reel, how would they know if you send it back whether it was previously owned (if that matters)?

No, the warranties on rods are only good for the original purchaser. These lifetime no fault warranties on rods have nothing to do with rods being unbreakable (they break very easily, in fact), and more of an incentive to buy a new rod. Not to say you cant get away with it, but I wouldnt expect to. good luck, nonetheless.
