Default Shimano Crucial spinning rod

I bought a 7'2" shimano crucial rod, medium with fast action. Its the one with the graphite handle not the cork. I took it canada for the walleye opener and on about my tenth cast my lure got hung up, so I tried to give it a yank and the rod snapped into 4 pieces! I had 14# strength fireline crystal and I didn't even pull that hard. So I looked at a few retail websites' customer reviews and I guess this does happen with those rods occasionaly. Otherwise the rod is super sensitive and you really feel every little stone or structure you bump. Anyway Cabelas was awesome about exchanging it for whatever I wanted.

whoa! the warranty on those is great though. I have 3 Crucials and haven't had to exercise that yet. They're absolutely great rods for the money.
