XEN Lifetime Warranty
The Hook & Hackle warrants its "XEN" rod blanks against any defect in material or workmanship for the lifetime of the original purchaser. If a defect in material or workmanship appears, we will either repair or replace the defective blank at our discretion. Our definition of defect does not include breakage from the following (or similar) acts:
slamming the rod in a car door, house door, cabin door, etc.; jamming the rod tip into the ground or other large, immobile object; cracking the rod over a tree limb, gunwale, overly excited dog, etc.; using the rod as a step to enter or exit a boat, float plane, helicopter, etc.; high-sticking or reefing on the rod while hung up, on a sounded fish, and so on; and any other abuses, as well as normal “wear and tear.”
We cannot cover damage to a blank caused by the workmanship of others during the assembly of the finished rod. The warranty is null and void if you exceed the recommended line rating for the rod, or if you alter the finish of the blank. The warranty is limited to the blank only.
