After latching into a 7lb hybrid yesterday I almost had it to shore when the top 4" of my Breakaway snapped off. I was bummed, but still landed the fish, plus one more. Contacted the folks at Breakaway yesterday and got a reply today. They wanted a couple pictures of the broken upper section and said they would send me a new rod tip. It sure is nice to get feedback that quick. Thought word about service like that should be passed on.
