    Default Salmologic Rod Warranty

    Since there has been a fair bit of interest in this new product launch I took a look over the website this afternoon, I found this bit in their warranty section which is interesting.

    how would they enforce it unless they are stood by your side on the river checking which line you had on the rod

    Sage are pretty good with warranties, but I bet if I told them I had a ten weight line on my 6wt they would come back with a similar reply.
    Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

    The rods have an accelerometer and a chip in them that sends an sms to Henrik when they are overloaded. You are in diffs if caught.

    Exactly, or like saying you can't overhead cast a skagit.

    not many will get the same load on their rod from the recommended line weight as HM, leaving a real need for most to add a line weight above(always thought this # was a recommendation on the rods and not the law)and indeed sustained anchor casts,ie double spey and c or snap t benefit from a heavier line!! sounds like hes not only selling a set up but insisting on a certain casting style as well!!
    would like a wee go on one with the recommended line on just to see what HM sees
    Id rather have something I don't need than need something I haven't got!!
