What is a Warranty?
A warranty is a form of guarantee that a manufacturer makes regarding the condition and use-life of its product. If the product does not function as originally described or intended, or fails due to a manufacturing defect, the item can be replaced.
What is a Manufacturing Defect?
A manufacturing defect occurs when there is an accidental, unintended error during either the design or production of a product, causing it to not perform as intended. With fishing rods, manufacturing defects that affect the blank will reveal themselves within the first use/load of the rod (whether this is the first cast, first fish, or even a flex when lining up the rod).
All Sixgill Fishing products are guaranteed. We are proud of our quality and workmanship and proudly back it with a warranty to make sure you're never left high and dry. We offer a warranty program for all manufacturing faults and defects to the original purchaser. All incidental and wear and tear damages are covered under our repair and service program.
- Rods broken by incidental damage of any type are not covered by warranty. New sections may be available for purchase if available.
- Broken guides are not covered under warranty.
- Saltwater damage is not covered under warranty. We highly suggest rinsing all products after use in saltwater.
- Use-life components such as Grips are not covered under warranty.
*All warranties are covered under the discretion of Sixgill Fishing products. If it is determined that the issue was a result of alteration, incident, neglect, or normal wear and tear, we will repair it for a fee.*
Loss or Theft is not covered under our Warranty program.
What Happens if a rod is not covered under warranty?
All rods we carry are covered by a warranty, except for those marked as closeout, series, or model clearance. Depending on the nature of the break however, there may be an associated fee. A warranty replacement fee is necessary for all rod breaks that are not deemed a Manufacturing Defect. This is still a warranty, but it also covers you in the case of incidental and use-life damage.
