If you bought it at Cabelas or Gander just take it back to the store and they will probably just hand you a new one!

Excellent warranty service at both stores! laugh.gif

If you are nearby the place where you bought it, I would try to go through them to get a new one. St. Croix wants you to pay to ship it to them plus $20 I think to have them ship it back. I went to the place where I bought it(not a big chain store)and they sent it back for $7.50 total. It took two and a half weeks to get a brand new one. Mine snapped when a boat seat back rest flew up while we were driving on the lake. They didn't ask any questions about what happened.

Just went threw this process. I contacted St. Croix rods to see if I could just bring it to Gander Mtn. (where it was purchased).I was told that all broken St. Croix rods must be sent to there main location in Wisc. for inspection (meaning shipping costs there and back). I sent it there and received a phone call informing me that they were going to repace the rod but wanted to know if I wanted to upgrade a level. I maybe should have as it took nearly 5 weeks to get the new one, (they later informed me it was on back order). Anyways, other than the delay and shipping costs, I was happy with the service and new rod.

Does anyone know how they are or what St. Croix does with the older Legend series on returns of damaged poles. HTB

If you go to Cabelas they will tell you that St Croix wants you to deal with them directly. Cabelas won't swap them out for you.

My brother was at the Rogers one last week with a tip that came unglued not broken just unglued and that is what they told him.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
