The teramar rods are tough as ugly sticks but way more sensitive. I have yet to break one in 10 years of crazy Yam fishing!
You haven't fished with Mward or Archenemy then - last time I fished with them they just about broke every non Ugly Stik rod in the boat, Teramar included!
They aren't made to pull out tree stumps! I have only broken one rod in my time and it was a Fenwick trolling rod. It broke at the tip probably because it looked like the eyelet had been crimped on instead of being glued. I should have just replaced the eyelet.
Sent it back in an aluminum case and they wanted $26 plus shipping for a replacement rod that wasn't equal to the original plus they kept my aluminum case.
