    Unhappy Deep Red...I caant baleef!!!

    Geepers!!!

    About 3 weeks ago, I bought a 6wt Stealth Deep Red, nice rod...well...today...I put some new line on a new reel and gave the rod a nice test on the lawn...bliksim, after about the 5th cast...the rod snapped on the 3rd piece, I was totally gobsmacked!

    My mate won a stealth extreme around a month ago in a lucky draw. He didnt even get to put line on it - put it together and then picked it up by the third section... Thanks for playing! Clean break in the middle of the 3rd section
