We know how awful it is to break your favorite fishing rod (we’ve been there). The TFO no-fault lifetime warranty is intended to provide our anglerscomplete confidence that if a TFO product is broken for any reason, there’s a solution to get them back on the water quickly and without hassles.
Every TFO fishing rod is built in our exclusive facility – never in someone else’s factory and never with somebody else’s rods – which assures us (and our anglers) extreme consistency and reliability. And because we understand the quality TFO anglers demand, we take the extra step of test-loading 100% of our fishing rods before they’re ever shipped. Doing so allows us to confidently provide the best warranty in the industry. Fishing rods do get broken, but we work hard to ensure that it’s not due to workmanship or manufacturing issues.
We will candidly answer questions about why a fishing rod broke and we’ll tell you if we don’t know. It may also be helpful to refer to Tom Kirkman’s article, Rod Failure (RodMaker Magazine). It’s usually not difficult to determine why a fishing rod unfortunately broke and this is a fantastic analysis discussing the differences between damaged and defective rod failures.
TFO will always repair or replace (at no cost to the customer) any product damaged due to faulty workmanship or manufacturing defects. TFO’s no-fault lifetime warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, accidents, abuse or broken guides; however, for a fee TFO does provide thorough and timely product repairs.
