    It's 70$, but if you use the form on their website sage will cover shipping costs.

    Looks to be going up from that $70. Their web site hasnt been updated. 

    300% in for some models.

       The cost has no impact on me. The wait, and the inconvenience of having to rebuild a section, is a bigger pain in the butt. I'm sure there will be a few who want to rant about the injustice of having to pay for something they feel entitled to. I spent 9 years processing warranty claims on all kinds of rods, and I'd rather own a good rod with an inconvenient claims process than deal with owning a 250$ liability with a better warranty. I've personally dealt with sage at least a dozen times since 1985, and every time the fault was mine. Dogs, vacuum cleaners, trolling motors, rocks, gravity, screen doors, and one screaming **** fit, aren't really the responsibility of the manufacturer, but they step up every time. I recently cracked the ferrule on a rod they no longer have the mandrels to reproduce (discontinued in 90', 9'6" 10wt), they built me a new rod (better rod) from the ground up for 175$. I can live with that.
