The mailman usually ding-dong ditches when delivering a package to my house.

This time, no doorbell. I heard the truck pull up, heard it leave. I walked to the door to see if there was a package, and sure enough, it was here. My 3 wt. bamboo blank!

Then it became obvious why he bolted so quickly... I would too.

I held my breathe as I opened it. Yep.

Fortunately, the seller was easy to work with. He ended up giving me a partial refund for the broken tip (came with two).

That stinks but glad you could square things with the seller. Was the packaging visibly damaged?

The top picture would answer that question, that must be so disappointing, sorry for you, glad it was sorted by the seller.

By the way, I'm the dummy that bought the wrong size reel seat from you! Thanks for helping me out!

Strummer, it's too bad about what happened to your blank. But just out of curiosity, what is the length of your 3-weight blank and how much was actually broken off teh tip? It looks to be about 2 or 3 inches. You may have the makings for a 1-weight banty...
