Several guys bragging about the Halo rods proir to and upon return for weigh-in same guys had broken rods... not just simply tips but the rods exploded in several pieces. just reporting what I saw and heard from owners.
that seems to be the case with a lot of new rod companies. they get an overseas mfg to build them, then within 12-16 months they have to switch. it happened to dobyn's, i think kistler had problems with their import rods a few years ago, and irod has switched mfgs in the past few months. even the large companies like abu and bps are not immune. if they have a good enough warranty it's not too much of a problem other than the inconvenience of being out a rod for a few weeks.
hopefully, if they are having any problems, they will get it solved. i like having affordable rod options!
