Hey guys THX for all the positive comments here!!  Rods are not made to be pulled straight down towards the butt. This is the hardest angle you can put on a rod. It's high sticking to the extreme!!  But, I try and build a little extra strength here ...just because. Also, we dead lift with each of our rods at the factory twice before shipping. We dead lift right after the blank is completed and then again right before packaging after handle and guides are put in place. We do this so we catch 99% plus of any defects. You don't want to deal with defects and I assure you I don't want to deal with them either. I also use only high quality materials from Japan or Korea. This also helps eliminate defects. Still, who knows..shipping? Defect? High sticking? There's no way I can tell at this point. But I can help with a new rod that breaks. Please send it to us and mark it Attn. Gary and note Ultimate Bass!!  This will jog my memory. Rods do break at times. All brands will break. Some brands just break more often :)  The things I do in our shop showing off rods strength would amaze most of you. I really wrench, bend , and abuse rods showing guys what they'll do. One of my reps brings guys in all the time and says "show him"!!  One of these days I'll break one but so far I never have!!!  We did get a 6" PVC tube back from UPS today that was broke and the 32 rods inside as well. Just imagine what force it would take to break a 6" PVC tube packed solid with 32 rods!!!  Yet they did it ...today!!
Customer service doesn’t get any better than this!

I appreciate you taking the time to respond Gary, and will get it sent in to you today marked as requested.  If it just looks like something that was completely my fault, I apologize for wasting your time. Thanks again to everybody else for the responses as well. 

I did get to take the Champion 703c rod out for about an hour and a half in the wee hours of the morning before heading into the office the other day and caught some little guys including these fighters and man that thing is noticeably more sensitive for those small worm bites and was a lot of fun to fish with.  Great rod!
