Long story short, I purchased a 500g 5'8" spinning hopper rod from ftu bout a month ago. Parked a saragosa 18k on it for the moment. Figured this rod would get the job done till I got an OTI or something. While spooling the reel the top two guide inserts popped right out. Called ftu they want me to pay for shipping both ways from CT. I guess you get what you pay for in product and in custoer service. Not bashin the product though I'm more ready to lean towards a unique problem rather than a flaw on down the line of rods. Guess I just got a lemon but I'm gunna return it. Anyone got suggestions for a PB jiggin spining rod ?
