I'm just an Average Guy,.....with an average Income........

I buy most of my Rods & Reels off the Rack.After all....I'm Lucky to use them once a Month & maybe one Long-Range per year.....

So,I have to Applaud Turners Sporting Goods for what they've done for Me the last 2 times I've been there.....

PROP#1 ....
A few Month's ago,My Favorite Bass Rod,"Old Faithful" if you will,a California Calico Special,broke for no apparent reason.......
I bought Her 10 yrs. ago and had caught everything from 80# MudMarlin to 40#YT on it,as well as 100's of the intended Species and it cast plastic like a dream and had the kinda backbone to bring Fish in......Matched with a Penn 535gs,it was My Go-to combo for many years.....

They replaced it,no questions asked,with a Comparable Rod as mine was no longer made........ :)...

PROP#2 ...

Last weekend,after battling a few Barracuda and while fighting a 4-5lb Grumpy at Hermosa Reef,my Diawa Coastal Inshore rod broke about 18" from the tip......Matched with a Calcutta 200,it was also a Favorite setup......



They replaced it,with a 7' model, (mine was 7'9") ,No Questions....

Bottom Line......If You can't afford Custom-Wrapped Monogrammed Rods & Gold-plated-Tweaked, Bad Ass Reels....Just buy Good,Named-brand Stuff & You'll be Fishing for a LONG TIME .....

I give props to Turners, and this is sort of a legendary tale I posted up on SenorTuna a year or two ago, for not making me pay any money for busting the tip off of one of their Graftech jigsticks.

Sales rep at the Hawthorne/Torrance store who saw the entire thing in action, I thank you for having mercy on me, and just laughing in my face and saying to me "give me that rod" like you were reprimanding a little doofus kid messing around in a candy shop. Who would have thunk it that just bending the tip of one of those rods a little bit with your left hand while holding the butt of the rod with your right hand would snap the rod.

Ever since then, I had newfound respect for Turner's and Graftechs are now known to me as Craptechs. :tu:
