Is there any place to get replacment tips for these rods or should I just try to find someone that repairs rods. The break is about 10 inches down on a 10 foot rod.

I broke about 6-7 inches off of a 12 footer, trimmed it down to the first guide and like it better. I thought it was too limber before, perfect now.

If you wish to be happy for 1 hour,get intoxicated.
If you wish to be happy for 3 days, get married.
If you wish to be happy for 8 days, kill you pig and eat it.
If you wish to be happy forever, learn to fish.

I like your signature there Creekslick, that's is good, especially the last one!:)

Grizzly Jigs has tip replacements. I have a Buck's Jig Pole that is broken off at the 2nd eye and it's just perfect for bottom bouncing a heavy weight. I may keep that broken tip just for that.

If you purchased from BPS just send it back. They are really good about replacing rods...

I just had one break it was 4 years old bass pro -- prorated the whole rod, not just the tip. good deal I thought.

I have broken three wally marshall 12 footers on average crappie! I finally went to B&M Brush Cutter!! I have pushed these poles to extreme conditions and still pulling in slabs!!

I have 2 of Wally's rods (10' & 12') and like them both even if the 12' one is a bit heavy, LOL! I also have 3 B n M Buck's Ultimate 10' that I have had longer. I also have one 10' Pro Angler. I like all of them and the only thing I will say is Wally's 10' I don't think I would try to lift as heavy fish with it that I would on the Buck's pole, but they are heavier action rods to start with.

The thing I like best about Wally's Pro Series is the face that it has a lighter action so it has more give if fighting a larger fish. A rod that has more bend will be more forgiving and not tear the hook out as easy.

Each rod has it's good or best qualities and just have to use them different a bit when lifting fish you have to be a little more careful with a lighter action rod.

I will also add that Wally's rods have more eyes and that is an important factor too. I really like them a lot. Would like to have a few more and may want to try some of the shorter rods as I like to use them in some cases.

For my short rods now I have a couple of Falcon rods that are just great and I have had them for longer than any of the above. I also use some other rods that were originally bought for finesse bass fishing.
