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.

      I've got a 53" ski...41"pike and an accidental 22" smallie on V. I have caught a 31" eye but not on vermilion.  Id  like to get a 30 out of there.

      Sunday was more of the same.  Morning bite was strong than waining midday.  Isaac and I managed 30 more walleye sunday morning before heading home. Our biggest for sunday 27" 8lb 4oz.  We caught 6 fish over 23" sunday, (2)23, 24  , (2)26, 27.   River is now open past Wheelers point.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.
