I don’t particularly care for Orvis rods but one time fishing in Michigan, an angler walked into a local fly shop (Orvis endorsed) with a rod that he just broke on the river. The shop looked through their inventory and gave him a replacement, took the broken rod and said that they would take care of everything! Wow!👍Just before the covid hit I broke a brand new 6 wt. Orvis Recon on its first trip. I whacked the push pole with it trying to grab the leader while rigging a fly (never even got to feel a fish with it). When I got back to town the Orvis shop told me to bring it in. I had a new one waiting for me at the office less than two weeks later.
That is only partially correct. I do know how to build rods. But you can't repair a broken rod section IF you can't get a replacement section. My problem has zero to do with who built the rod. There just isn't a section available to do the job.It would take less time and money to learn how to build and fix your own rods.
Everything with G Loomis has been back ordered horribly this past year due to supply chain issues. My buddy waited 4-5 months for a replacement bait casting rod.I’ve got one out at GLoomis right now that been there since June. It was approved to be replaced but they said not to expect a replacement until next year sometime….. I mean holy cow, that’s crazy.
