I'll let you guys know how the warranty works out on the WW fly rod. I broke mine casting this weekend and will be sending it back this week.

You broke it casting? What happened? Just got mine today and I am not overly impressed about the saddle and "rosewood" - it seems a bit cheap.

I do agree with you on the reel seat seeming cheap. It is made in China. I busted the guys stones a little about that. He said he will eventually start making his own.
I really don't know how I broke it. I was roll casting and half lobing a medium weight streamer and all of a sudden it was broken. It broke about 6" above the top sections connection point. I may have hit it on something and didn't hear it due to the rain pounding on my hood but I don't remember feeling it.
I will say I liked it for the few hours I used it nymphing. As long as the warranty process is smooth, I still think it's not a bad rod for the money.

Yeah, I agree. I have not casted the rod yet as I am awaiting its other half (reel), but just from the look of the butt and saddle, I am definitely a little disappointed. It is still a 100$ rod, and Im sure I could have found a used one of a bit better quality for that same price on some forums. I will rig it up, and cast it and hopefully what it lacks in aesthetics, it will make up for in durability and casting prowess. I am a bit worried though.
