Broken Daiwa LT Flippin stick

Postby olds350ho » Sat Sep 29, 2007 4:05 pm

I was out this morning and was flippin caught a couple small bass, then I got a 3 pounder and my daiwa lt broke just past the second line guide from the reel seat. :evil: I have been looking ever sense I got home for the receipt and can not find it, do you think they will still warrantee it? This really sucks because tomorrow Iam going to Kentucky lake for a week of fishing. Has this happened to anyone? Thanks

I can't really say for sure, but I bet you will get a lesser replacement fee. Send it in, explain what happened, and ask if there is a production date on the rod to help plea your case. Good luck. Oh, and if you bought it on a credit card, you can check the store. Sometimes they will keep a copy of the receipt for a while on their computers.

The same thing happend to my 6'6" MH LT. I plan on sending it in just to see what happens. I dont have the reciept either and am not sure if this is my older or newer LT. My friend has sent some tackle back to daiwa with pretty good success. So i will see what i can get.

Not sure about rods, but I've had only great experiences with Daiwa customer service. Call them up and state your situation before sending anything in, that way you know exactly what they'll do for you before putting out any shipping fee's..
Good luck..

Daiwa is a great company! if your out of warrenty and have the 1st or 2nd gen. L&T than you can pay to get the upgrade +your shipping.

Daiwa was kind enough to replace my 1st gen 6'6 MH and 7'6 flippin' stick for their new stock L&T's because they sent me two rods from their lower end line without calling me first for the upgrade option. Can't say they will do the same for you but if your out of warrenty they help you out!
