Ok so what else can be done?

Recommended Posts

Good day,

 

I have a 10 '6 Fenwick HMX that has snapped in half, well more like 3/4s near the top, I called Pure Fishing in Manitoba, they told me to send the rod to their location with shipping that I have to pay. They also said I may not get a replacement. Do they really test the rod for age, place of breakage, and so on? Does anyone know a short-cut through the bushes with this one?

They don't do all that testing. And you don't have to do all that work. Angling specialties or Aikemens sporting goods will send it for you and you get an equal replacment. Just a heads up, the rod won't be returned quickly.

Pay whatever it costs to ship it to Manitoba, I've done it several times over the years and always received a replacement rod. Can't believe you wouldn't.

Do it yourself, much faster that way and still a lot cheaper than buying a new rod.

It's only a rod.

Junk it and get another.

Don't lose any sleep over it, or anything else.

Material things are not important in life.

Someday you'll know what I mean, why not adapt now and progress?

 

 

in this kind of society it very much is important, as the ways of making good money or money to at least make it through the month thin, we have to work that much harder for what we have, sadly money talks...

if all else fails they can be repaired, just like a busted hockey stick...

I sent them half a rigger stick years ago, I think I told them I stepped on it or something like that and asked to be billed for the replacement as I was at fault. They sent me a new half at no charge, WoO HOO . But I think they have changed ownership since then so they might not be so generous.

 

Browning was another that was very good to me.

Aikems is not a store they do warranty work for most companies. If you are still stuck send it yourself, buy a tube, tape it up and send it. Pay the shipping there and back. Done, you will have it by Chrismas.

LOL , hey bud...funny as how both the rod's we traded each other, broke...I returned mine for an over the counter replacement at KTL in missisauga...For fenwick I am almost positive that you can bring the rod in to Aikmans and they will give you a replacement right there and then..I have had 2 buddies go their with broken rods, and they don't ask any questions , they even give you a couple options if your rod is no longer available...

I got realy desparate and tried to glue a fenwick back together after I slammed a door on it. They sent me a new one lol. Dont expect to be using it this season though. Will probably get it back in time for spring.

Isn't there a Fenwick distributor in Mississauga?

They do alot of the Ontario warranty work, you can just walk in with a broken rod and walk out with a new one?

 

Darn, forget where the place is, it's been that long since I've owned a Fenwick.
