Re: Megabass customer service is pathetic.

Local vehicle dealers have warranty service centers for that reason. That is a horrible comparison because I do not have a megabass dealer within 100 miles of me but countless ford chevy dealers. jib I think you may have misunderstood the gist of my post. What i was trying to convey is that you sho...

Re: Megabass customer service is pathetic.

PM sent to OP and just as an FYI the process was started a couple of months back to where MOA will have rod components in stock to send to customer or repair shop to avoid costly shipping and repairs via a 3rd party. That being said I know personally that MOA will do all in their power to keep a cu...

Re: Megabass customer service is pathetic.

Yes I was also told that the rattling issue was unheard of when I called in to megabass about it. Seems strange dont you think.

Re: Megabass customer service is pathetic.

Have had zero experience with MB USA customer service, most reports I hear, have been positive. The Tackle Trap (Bronzefly) and a TT advertiser, has a very good relationship with MB USA. Since the rods sold in the US are "Fair Trade", buying your MB rods through the Tackle Trap may help with or eli...

Re: Megabass customer service is pathetic.

I feel that if its a quality control issue or defect with the rod it should be handled with the company who makes the rod. I see no reason to involve the retailer who you purchased the rod from unless you just want a refund. I also see no reason that megabass should expect the dealer to deal with th...

Re: Megabass customer service is pathetic.

I completely agree. A while back I had a brand new x7 super eiger that I purchased from an authorized retailer in the U S that came in with a crooked blank and about 5 times too much epoxy on one of the guides and the stripper guide which i know is supposed to be backwards on this particular model w...

Re: switching from dobyns to kistler?

If your not into fancy paint and want a no frills very lightweight high quality rod go with the kistler klx, he3, or zbone. Some of the cleanest best built U.S. factory rods i have seen.

Re: First Impressions Curado I 200

I purchased several of the new I's when they came out. Added 4 bearings to the handles, they are nice reels but in my opinion i still prefer my e series. I have sold all of my I series. I cant really put my finger on what i didnt care for, they just did not feel as high quality as the e series to me.
