I had an almost 10 year old T-38X that I broke about a month ago. I took it to Cut Rate and they exchanged it out for a new T-series. Since the original price for the T-38X was a bit more than the T-series, they did not charge me the normal $10 exchange fee.
just a thought on rodsbillystix custom rods?? lol if i can be of service tou you guys that own broken rods then perhaps its time to give billystix a shot, you are not likley to break a spiral as easily as a normal rod, not to say that it wont happen but if it does you can deal with a fair guy. if you would like to learn more then please visit me and molly at www.billystix.com stix
