Warning about Abel Products

The Abel Company as you know makes a damn good reel, over priced but a good reel. On a weekend not too long ago my buddy Mike and I were rigging up our rods for the Cachuma Lake Trout Derby when the slip sinker bounced a couple of times around the tip of my Abel bass rod. I reached up to slide the line back off and in doing so had to bend the tip a little and it snapped off in my hand. For a few beats Mike and I did not speak. We couldn't believe it. This is a rod I had bought less than a year earlier with my birthday money. I own a couple other Abel products ( The multi pocketed carry-on and a pair of pliers) but I have bought my last Abel product. I live 20 minutes from the Abel company and when I took the rod back to them to exchange because it had a life time warranty I was told to replace it, it would cost me another $125 dollars. I still have my broken rod as a reminder to not overspend for a brand name. What really upsets me is the fact that they did not believe me when I told them that it broke the way it did. They said it looked well used ( it was, I live on a bass lake.) but I take damn good care of my stuff and this rod even more so. I blame myself for not reading the fine print but I will never endorse another Abel product.
