Our Product Promise:

Guaranteed for life—we will stand behind this reel for as long as you own it. As this reel utilizes a metal clicker in a metal gear, wear over time is inevitable. We ask that if any issues are to arise down the road, you send the reel back to us so that we can be certain it is repaired to our standards. We will happily cover the cost of repair as long as we can confirm that there was a malfunction, rather than blatant user error.  You can register your reel and learn more about our warranty at our Product Registration and Warranty page.
