Here's my tally of broken rods so far........
6'6" st Croix legend tournament
7'11" shimano crucial split grip flipping rod
7'5" g loomis 894 mossyback
6'6" shimano compre spinning rod
7'2" shimano crucial dropshot spinning rod
Talk about bad luck. All this season, all but one actually fishing.
The mossyback broke yesterday one the hook set after landing six fish prior to the breakage. I sure hope this does not continue as I am not made of infinite wealth. I was quite composed after the breakage. Usually I throw a fit and scream and yell. This time I just took the reel off and put the rod back in the rod box. Anger management classes do help in these situations
