I put Temple Fork Outfitters to the test last week. While out trying some large Poppin Bugs that I had tied, I snapped the tip off of my 8wt. I sent the rod and a $25 as instructed. In just over a week, I got my rod back with two new sections and with no hassle. IMO this is the best value going. A great casting rod, affordable, and a no hassle lifetime warranty. Think I'll try one of their casting rods.
