Thomas & Thomas warrants its graphite and fiberglass fly rods and blanks against breakage due to defects in materials or workmanship for the life of the original purchaser as long as he/she retains ownership of the rod. The warranty shall be effective only for new rods purchased from an authorized Thomas & Thomas dealer and registered with Thomas & Thomas within 30 days of purchase.
This warranty is limited to the repair or replacement of the rod. Every Thomas & Thomas fly rod is carefully inspected prior to shipment. However, if breakage or any defect in workmanship should appear, simply send the rod or blank to Thomas & Thomas and it will be repaired or replaced. Repair of non-warranty damage to most Thomas & Thomas rods is also available for a reasonable charge. Materials and color may vary from those used on the original rod (for example, in the event that the model is no longer in production).
Warranty does not cover lost sections or lost rods, ordinary wear and tear, neglect or intentional breakage. A return shipping, handling and mailing insurance charge will be applied to repairs. Original owner is responsible for the cost of sending in the rod to be repaired (customer should insure) and any duty or taxes due on international shipments. This warranty does not cover damage caused by use for other than its intended purpose or by others through attempted modifications or customization of the finished rod or damage caused by others during assembly of a blank into a finished rod. In no event does Thomas & Thomas accept or assume any responsibility or liability for incidental or consequential damages related to or arising from ownership or use of the rod or blank.
