Rod blank selection

Any body using MHX blanks with success? I have had 3 of the same blanks all break at the exact same location. Not quite sure what is up with that. I have a few other blanks that had had no issue.

    I've used quite a few of them over the years and never had an issue. They do warranty their blanks if you register them. Just curious, where they are breaking on you?

    7'  blank is breaking at 20" down from the tip. 2 of the rods were my personnal rods. Never over loaded, high sticked,  or dropped. The 3rd blank is a friend of mine. All 3 of these rods are the same blank.
    I also fish a 7-6" with no issue and my wife has a 6'6" and a 7' with no issues.
    The warranty I looked up and only a 1 year and there was a fee, can't remember how much, 50 or 90.

    I would give mud hole a call and run it by them. They have great customer service. On a 7` blank it sounds like 20 inches would be around the area of the tip transition. Please post up their response about it.

    I'm using a couple several times a week for a couple of years with no problem.  Reelthief is right contact Mudhole.
