Shipping a St. Croix

5 posts in this topic

I snapped an Avid this week and need to send it back. What's the best method? It broke darn near in the middle, so it is only going to be about 3.5 feet long, but finding a box for it is proving a little difficult.

For a few extra dollars you can pick up a piece of pvc. Maybe you have a scrap piece laying around too.

Yep, I agree about the PVC. It is really not that expensive if you just go buy 4ft or so, and with the new USPS rates, it is usually cheaper to send it via Priority mail because there is no surcharge for extra length. I ship and receive a lot of rods and I have never had any problem with PVC, I have received a couple rods in cardboard tubes, and both of them have been damaged upon arrival. One came in two pieces via FedEx and one came with a couple smashed eyelets via USPS. So I think whenever possible go with PVC, even though your rod is broke, it will be look better for warranty purposes if it is in its present two piece condition than possibly in four.

Not sure if it would be cost effective to come and get it but I have a rod Cylinder that Loomis sent when they repaired my Walleye Series.

I have some PVC also.

Those Walleyes really fight you may want to beef that rod up a little... grin.gif

If I would have broken it on a walleye, I wouldn't have told anyone about it and just ate the cost tongue.gif

Didn't you break that Loomis of yours on a bullhead?

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
