What's the deal with Capt. Harry's? I was in there a couple of weeks ago looking for a Terez and they said they stopped carrying them because they were experiencing an unusual number of breakages. They said the warranty was not a problem and Shimano was replacing any rod with no questions, but they said they were having too many dissatisfied customers losing the use of their rod.
Not bashing as I have a bunch of GLoomis and a few Shimano rods and they are my favorites. Just not sure what the problem may be with the Terez's as I was thinking of getting a couple?
The dealers will alwasy carry what they think they will sell. These rod actions were designed for specific west coast applications. I'm not saying they won't work for the east coast, but the dealers may try to be "safe" and only carry what they think is correct for their customers.
As far as Capt. Harry's...I have no idea. I'll try to look into this today and see what is going on. We have not experienced any number of failures with the Terez rods.
