Saltywater Tackle Inc requires all broken or damaged rods or blanks to be returned for inspection unless, otherwise the rod or blank is lost or missing. 
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights that vary from state to state.
