    Broke in Half

    I bought a defender rod almost exactly 3 years ago from today. I haven't fishing much with it at all and I take good care of my rods. No tailgates, no hard snatching when the bait is hung. However today randomly the rod broke in half when reeling in a 1lb bass. I've maybe used the rod 30 times since I've bought it as I haven't fished much in previous years. I should've bought a duckett silverado for the same price.

    Defender casting rod

    Bought a defender casting rod at a local Field & Stream store. Had it just over a year was on vacation and set the hook on a 2lb bass. A simple sweeping style hookset much like with a spinning rod when I hear snap at the apex of the sweep. There goes half the rod sliding down the line. I take GREAT pride in caring for my equipment. I have many many rods that I use regularly and have had no problems with. I literally had used this one no more than 12 times. If I was at fault for the break I would admit it however this is clearly a quality issue and not my fault. When I emailed Favorite corporate I was offered a 20% discount voucher for a rod that was roughly a month out of warranty! Why would I want to invest more money in your product(s) after just losing $110?? How about a “good will” replacement rod…?

    Great Rods

    I have 4 of the Defender 7'0 Medium Heavy, a 7'3 extra Heavy, and a 7'6 Heavy. They just seem to be tough as nails and have great actions. So for the price point of these rods they just can not be beat.

    Have a few problems

    Between my son and I we have purchased 6 Denfenders rods over last 2 yrs. We love the rods they are strong and sensitivity. I have 2 major issues with them 1st the eyes a junk we have replaced eyes on nearly everyone the inside of the eyes pop out or the Apoxy finish was bridal finish allowed the whole eye foot and all to come off the blank. Last issue is the cork handle is already breaking down and small chuncks are fall off. Don't get me wrong Favorite rods are great from Balance to pro series have sick sticks etc.. Good products just the defenders have some issues. Favorite is great to deal with have always made right on problems. Never sent a defender back easier to get local tackle shop guy to fix problems with eyes then the hassle of send them back. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up.
