I have 3 Terez rods that I have had problems with rust on the guide feet bleeding up thru the serving and the blanks "yellowing" (they are supposed to be pearl white). The store where I bought them has exchanged them several times in the past and they are now in need of exchange again this time mostly due to yellowing. I contacted the store and they said I now need to go directly thru Shimano so I have a few questions:
1- Whats the expected time to get them back?
2- It seems with these rods the rust issue is not near as bad as in the past (maybe shimano is getting close to a fix?) but the yellowing is still occurring alarmingly fast, one rod turned from a pristine white to a dingy, dirty yellow color across the entire blank, while the other 2 have yellowed from the first guide to the foregrip. This is getting old and I'm wondering if instead of getting pearl white again if I can exchange them for Aqua?
3- can I pack all 3 in the same tube with them individuall wrapped?
