    Default rod section advice

    Hi Guys
    I need some advice please. I have a TFO 6wt which I have only used about 6 times. For some reason the tip section keeps on coming off in the cast. This happened on Saturday and the 3rd section cracked. Can I cut just below the damaged piece and carry on using it? Your advice will be welcome. Thanksrod tip.jpg

    Hey Rols!

    I would send straight back to TFO - They will send you a new rod!

    Hi Rols

    Simply take it back to where you bought it and have them either replace it or send it in to TFO to be replaced.

    Don't cut anything else that no questions asked guarantee goes out the window.

    Rols, I dont think that you even need them. Just drop TFO a mail and tell them the situation. If not, send the rod to me and I will cut it down half and inch and rewrap the ferule for you. It wont be the same, but it will work!

    Thanks Jade. Will send them a mail in the morning. It's my best rod and I "save" it for special occasions, hence the only few times I've used it.
