OPST Rod Warranty
THE OPST ROD RETURN TO BASE WARRANTY
We, OPST USA, stand behind our rods and guarantee our fly rods against any defect in materials or workmanship for 24 months from the date of proof of purchase. For rods purchased through the Australasian Distributor, I LOVE FLYFISHING, that have failed due to material or workman defect, please send back the entire rod, including sock and tube, to I LOVE FLY FISHING, who will arrange on shipping to, Olympic Peninsula Skagit Tactics, Tukwila, WA 98168, USA.
On receipt we will replace or repair the rod (section) at our discretion. All OPST rods are warrantied for the original owner only. Rods must be registered within 30 days of purchase, through our website https://pureskagit.com/apps/product-registration, utilizing the Unique ID number, indicated on the Warranty Card which was provided with your rod at the time of purchase. Unregistered or resold rods are not covered by this warranty. Rods purchased from third party sites such as eBay or Amazon are not covered by the warranty.
This is a return-to-base warranty, that requires the entire rod to be returned with the sock and tube. Please note that all warranty claims incur a shipping, processing and handling fee of NZ$90.00 to be paid to I LOVE FLY FISHING in advance. We reserve the right to repair or replace any rods or sections covered by this warranty.
This warranty exclusively covers only failures due to manufacturing defects and materials providing that during the warranty period the rod has been used correctly for it’s designed purpose and all reasonable care taken. The warranty does NOT cover misuse, normal wear and tear, being hit by flies, loss, accidental damage and breakage, breakages from trying to free lines from snags either in or out of water or continual environmental exposure especially saltwater. Further the warranty does not cover lost rods, lost rod sections, intentional breakage, misuse, negligence, normal wear-and-tear, cosmetic wear or scratches.
It is anticipated that during the life period of a particular rod model, replacement sections may be available, or repairs undertaken. If repairs are completed the repaired section, due to discontinued cosmetic options and components, may differ in finished colour, bindings and/or guide type, and may be replaced/repaired with their most comparable equivalent. Rods and sections that fall into these categories may be repaired or replaced at the cost of the original owner only at a cost to the original owner.
The estimate for non-warranty repairs (as at February 2020) are as follows: Tip Section NZ$180, Second Section NZ$200, Third Section NZ$230 and Butt Section NZ$260 to be paid in advance. These costs are an estimate only and may change without notice, they will be quoted at the time.
