I sent a rod back to the manufacturer to have spinning cork rings fixed on the grip. This was a "life time warranty" rod and you would think that it would have been a fairly straightforward fix. I did not care about the time it took (3 months) or $75 because I have others but they had to replace the entire butt section and not just repair the grip. Second they put a fore grip on the rod when it did NOT have one prior and I hate fore grips.
Sorry for the vent but pretty frustrated.
