All Lamiglas rods are backed by either a 1 Year, 5 Year, or Limited Lifetime Warranty. Warranty coverage applies to breaks that happen due to a defect in material or the way the rod was built.
In the cases of accidental breaks from trips, slips, falls, etc. (we've all been there) or gradual wear and tear, Lamiglas still has your back. Our no questions asked Fast Track Program will get you a brand new replacement rod quickly and easily.
All rods sent in for service & warranty must be accompanied by the Check-In Rod Repair & Replacement form, found here: Rod Repair & Replacement Form.
Our rods are built to last when fished properly. Use the right tackle and take care with your rods and they will last a lifetime. Here are things that will compromise a rods construction:
Leaving rod unsecured in cars, pickup beds, boxes etc. If not secured, the rod will rattle around and take hits and damage from other objects and weather elements. Repeated knocking of rods (especially graphite) can start to break down fibers and leave the rod ready for a quick break, even if it's not immediately visible. A rod could appear perfectly fine after a few months of this, then break on the first good stress of the blank.
Knocking rods off of trees, rocks etc. When walking through the woods or while fishing small water, it is easy to hit rods into trees and rocks. Sometimes it's unavoidable, but use as much caution as possible to keep rods away from surfaces that could harm the material.
Trying to "yank" your lure from a snag. If you become snagged, give it a few moderate tugs and try to work different angles to get it back. Do not pull directly back with drag cinched repeatedly until you get it back or the line breaks - that is undue stress. Instead, point your rod at the snag so that no bend is achieved and the pressure is on the line. Pull back steadily while holding the spool.
The breaks above are not covered under warranty. In the case of accidental/incidental breakage, use our Fast Track Program and receive the most affordable replacement pricing.
If the issue is due to a defect in materials or workmanship, the rod will be repaired or replaced to you as quickly as possible. If the problem is due to an unfortunate accident, misuse, alteration or normal wear and tear, we will advise you of the cost of the repair or replacement and await your approval prior to proceeding.

Have you heard of our Fast Track program yet?
Did you step on your rod? Run it over in your car? Come home to an angry significant other trying to get revenge on you for spending all of your time on the water? No worries, we've got you covered.
With our new "Fast Track" program, you can have your rod replaced, no matter the age of it or the cause of the break, for a small fee depending on series. To make it even easier for you, you do not have to mail the entire rod in. Simply cut out the small label section of the rod and stick it in an envelope with a check for the appropriate fee.
We also pay the shipping back to you, free of charge to 48 US states!
You can even use this warranty program at any participating retailer, so you can get back to fishing that day instead of having to wait for the snail mail to go through.
If mailing the section back, be sure to include the completed Rod Repair & Replacement Form, which can be found here: Fill out Rod Replacement Form
Mail in just the section in the photo below. This makes it cheaper and easier to mail.
You will be charged a flat fee for a replacement rod depending on the series. This is the final cost unless in Washington - where you will be charged tax.
