I had a 7'5 MH for maybe 6-8 months when out of nowhere when I casted a 3/8 Oz tungsten weighted Texas rig it flew apart like a 2 peice. I waited way too long to have anythingdone about it nor do I know they qould even do anything. I also had bad luck ou5 of the lunker defender limited edition. Both spinning and casting. My spinning snapped right during a cast, my father was using it so I thought maybe he wiped it hard or something, then with my casting I had it break of a Hooksett. I just had a really bad experienceand honestly if it hadnr happened to me I wouldn't believe it myself because their rods feel amazing but I literally lost over 600$ from them tearing up and I just can't afford to replace somethingthat cost 150$ once a year.
When I use it I will let you know lol
I have 3 Summits 1 Hex 1 Balanced 1 Rush 1 Defender 2 Pro Series and 1 Phantom… The phantom is the only one that has let me down. Set the hook fishing a Jig and it snapped about a foot down from the tip. Other than an eye coming off a pro-series rod, I haven’t had any problems out of any Favorite rods but this one. My warranty is expired so my advice to you is don’t buy this rod. The Pro Series is a better design and has a lifetime guarantee. I love favorite rods the Phantom just isn’t my favorite….
First off let me apologize for the misfortune on the Phantom rod, but I want to thank you for your continued support of our company. For future reference we do have the Favorite Army subscription program that comes with a load of benefits including lifetime warranty on all Favorite owned products.
This was a Christmas gift for my son so after he tries it out I’ll leave feedback
