The telescopic gaffs we stock at Fish On Pro Shop are manufactured to the highest quality and standards. When you first receive your gaff, you should inspect it prior to use in salt water to see if it freely opens and closes as well as inspecting it for any manufacturers faults. If there are any problems with your gaff at this stage contact us immediately. Remember these gaffs are manufactured to fine tolerances to ensure they open and close correctly, regular maintenance is vital!
If your gaff is in good working order when you receive it, then it is highly unlikely that it will be a manufacturers fault. If it is not opening and closing properly, 9 Times out of 10 the problem with the gaff will be salt inhibition due to poor maintenance from not properly washing down the gaff in fresh water after every use. If this is the case you will not qualify for a warranty as a warranty will only cover you if there is a manufacturers fault in your gaff.
All telescopic squid gaffs we sell have a maximum vertical working load limit of 2kg, and are very weak with lateral loading. If you lift a load on an angle you will compromise the structural integrity of the telescopic tubing on your gaff. If your gaff snaps or cracks in this instance it is highly unlikely you will qualify for a warranty as a warranty will only cover you if there is a manufacturers fault in your gaff, not improper use. If your gaff was in good order when you received it, it is highly probable that it is not a manufacturers fault.
If you still believe you should receive a replacement gaff under warranty, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will advise you on what needs to happen.
The fishing rods we stock at Fish On Pro Shop are high quality, specialised items such as egi (squid) fishing rods and light jig rods, all which are inspected and pre-loaded prior to them being sent out to you. All rods are covered under a limited 1 year manufacturer's warranty, and are guaranteed to be free from faulty workmanship and materials. When you first receive your rod you must inspect it for any manufacturing defaults prior to use. If there are any problems with your rod at this stage contact us immediately.
Unfortunately with the advent of ultra lightweight Carbon fibre and graphite rods, breakages can occur very easily as these rod blanks are very brittle and generally do not have a thick epoxy coating such as your typical "all rounder" rod. A break in a fishing rod can occur sometimes after an event that caused the blank to be fractured, such as it being dropped on the floor or knocked on the side of the boat or wall. For this reason alone the cause of a rod break can be almost impossible to know for certain, but probably the most common cause is by “high sticking” - the rod is held above an angle of 45 degrees and excessive weight is applied to the tip area causing it to snap. This is NOT a fault of the rod.
What we do know for sure is that the vast majority of breaks are NOT caused by faulty materials or workmanship. If a fracture was present before purchase then the rod would break the first time it was put under load (ie. being pre-loaded during our quality inspections prior to shipment or the first time the rod was used to fish with). If the rod is in good working order after your first fishing session then the blank is in perfect working order and contains no manufacturing flaws.
If you still believe your fishing rod should be replaced under warranty, please email email@example.com and we will advise you on what needs to happen.
