I had recently bought an OTI jigging rod (600g) only to have it break, probably due to a bubble in the blank (these things happen). I contacted Rick and TJ and they were more than happy to exchange the rod. The day after sending TJ my adress the rod was on my doorstep. Props to OTI for standing by their warranty and making a quality project. It seems like companies willing to do that are all to hard to find. If you're in the market for a jigging rod you definatly owe it to yourself to check out the OTI product. Now I can wait to yank on some fish with it!
