Got any Daiwa fans? Update
I bought a brand new Daiwa rod/reel combo yesterday and set out trout fishing this morning. I fished for about 20 minutes (not catching anything)snagged a rock and was trying to get loose when "SNAP" and the rod broke right above the 3rd ring. The rod is medium light rated for 6lb-8lb and I had 8lb el cheapo line on the reel. My question is....do I try to return to store that is 45 minutes away or try to go through Daiwa? Anybody dealt with thier customer service?
