t3 hood snapped in half

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

Ha! I just had the same thing happened a couple days ago! Hooked crank bait on the hood, shut around locker on the crank bait and didn't realize it and then try to move the rod by lifting it and it immediately snapped. Mine was a really clean break and I actually used fast setting JB Weld and it still works snd looks like new. Call Daiwa for the part.

i usually shut the hood with my thumb and this time i broke it. its kind of my fault because i got sand in it while trying to take a rod reel fish pic. it was stuck and i pressed pretty hard.

i will call that number. thanks alot
