I got my money back on the rod and I got to keep the rod because shipping back to Japan would not be cost effective. The seller sent me a message apologizing and saying that these rods sometimes come with misaligned guides but because the rod is flexible, it can still be used. :roll:
I'll eventually give this combo away to whoever wants it for the cost of shipping a 4' rod.
