Nice looking rod but fragile

I have went through two of these rods and my buddy has went through one. The first time I broke one it was completely my fault. Got it caught up in a branch going down some rapids. The send time I broke it however was a sign of how flimsy the rod is. I was baiting my hook and had the rod about two eyelets down holding it between my arm and my body. And just like that the rod snapped in half.

Not even thirty minutes later my buddy broke his in the exact same sport by lightly hitting it with his paddle on a stroke.

Now here is the wierd part. I am not really that mad they broke. It seemed to be a blessing in disguise as we just put new tips on the now 4' rod and they seem to perform better than originally made. No clue how long they will last though.

I gave it low ratings due to the fact they break so easily
