Just got the premere series 6'6 medium fast action baitcasting rod and on the top guide a peice fell out. Not the whole guide just the peice of plastic inside the guide (i thing its plastic) that prevents the line from getting messed up and cut. Will this really do anything. Im going to BPS to return the rod but still its bull$%^&.

I have 10lb test fireline.

It fell off on the very first cast.

I would take it back to where you bought it. The piece that popped out was ceramic not plastic. If the place you bought it will not replace the rod you can send it in to St. Croix or have the tip replaced locally.

I would think they would replace it. Depends on their store policy. They may offer to send it back to St. Croix for you. Give the store in Bolingbrook a call and ask them if they will replace your rod or do you have to return it to the store where you bought it.

well if i just get a new tip on it at a bait shop will it lose any feeling to it. Because there is no time to take send it in to St. Croix becuase i need it next week on my trip to Michigan.

I have had this happen and here is what I did. I called St. Croix and they asked for the model and serial number and they sent me a new tip for $5. I had to pay for it, but it was cheaper than paying to have a rod sent to them and I also got it in a few days. It is real easy to change the tip on any pole.

Replacing a tip is easy, have had to do this to a couple of rod,

do to fact that my 11 year old has a problem with holding his rod

up when he walks. Any tackle store or even walmart should have

a tip replacement kit. The instructions are in the kit. Good luck,

hope you get it fixed for your trip.

I just had my St. Croix rod tip replaced at Corens. It is just as good as new. They do great work. It cost me around $9.00 and they fixed it while I waited. They are located at 6001 N. Niva Avenue in Chicago.

I don't know how the guy at Coren's stays in business. He never charges me for anything. I go out of my way to buy stuff from him but he tells me I am better off getting stock rods from other places.

He even got me set up with some real nice used rods on the cheap/

He really is a nice guy
