    This one is built on a Custom/prototype GF600M (only one that I know of). Pac Bay Holo guides, Batson silver alum reelseat, Hypalon fore, non-skid rear, marblized to match guides....

    I am impressed! What are we talking for a price range for this kind of demolition equipment?

    This rod was around $270 with the marbling. Prices vary widely depending on the hardware, blank...etc. Similar rods could range from 180 - 400, all depends on what you want.

    ...Silver Avet MXJ 2-speed......but now nuthin's going on it! The customer recieved a thick wall PVC tube...LITTERALLY FOLDED IN HALF!!!!!!!...and of course, the rod suffered some serious re-engineering in the process. #%$#@!!!! Shipping companies %$%$#@# SUCK!!! HOW IN THE $#%$ DO YOU BEND A 3" SCH-40 PVC PIPE???? I actually tried to bend one the other day...took a quite a bit of force...and to snap a beefy GF600M on top of that! Maybe I should just write "PLEASE HANDLE WITH RECKLESS ABANDON" down the side of the tube...maybe the idiots will handle it with care just do the opposite of what it says.

    UNBE- #$%*&#$ -LIEVEABLE! :eek:

    BTW Gabe... Your rod should be shipping tomorrow...different carrier, insured for 10 times the value!!..... it breaks, we both make money on the deal...LOL!!

    It probably got run over on the loading dock by one of the fork-lifts or something that wasn't secured in the truck slid into it and folded it up...they carry all kinda crap...back when I worked for a living we had LOTS of damaged loads from LTL carriers...they just don't give a crap...its worth the extra to insure but...good luck getting your money from them (unless its the post office)...they will want to send adjusters out...verify cost on everything..scrutinize the way it was packed take tons of pictures...then deny your claim...so insuring for more than its worth for the most part won't help...sorry to hear all your time and effort was for naught...good luck with the next one...

    Yup, been there a few times over the last 22 years of shipping rods...actually prety rare to see damage to a rod from shipping, but when it does happen...ouch! I havnt seen this rod or the tube yet, should be back here in the next few days. My initial thought was that it was run over as well, but the customer didnt see any tell tale tire marks...unmistakable on a white PVC tube. Who knows...:dunno:
