Being the nice guy that I am, I just cannot let another fisherman use a defective rod. Just pack it up and mail it to me. I'll make the sacrifice and use that defective old rod. You just go ahead and buy a good rod from LRO and send that old defective one to me.
Some I'm so nice I surprise myself.
On the other hand, you may want to try it out a few dozen more times just to be sure, but, hey, if you think it's defective, send it to me.
