Key Largo Rods has a advertised life time warranty......they do not stand by or behing their product. After 2 years and a promise to replace brokenthe first Tarpon Rod. still waiting. Broke two in one week in May, told must have went under a bridge, then I was told that you can't lock down the drag, I guess that you must use their rods on the clicker only and no drag. I was finally told that the rods were abused . the rods were never inspected. Other than being broken while tarpon fishing, they are in very good condition.This has been my experience Do you want a product that does not perform then purchase a Key Largo 8' Tarpon Special and forget about a warranty. They offered to replace 3 rods at their cost...at no cost to them. NO Deal, selling on line for parts. TARPON HUNTER Update 8/20/2012 Key Largo Rods has failed to respond to consumer complaint and complaint with the BBB. I do not recommend purchasing any products from this bussiness false advertising regarding life time warranty and failure to return rod to customer since 6/19/2010 this is customer service at its worst. Doesn't remember picking it up and doesen't know its where abouts....need I say more?
