WARRANTY

Old 18 offers two warranty options for each rod series:

  • Manufacturer’s Defect warranty
  • Non-fishing Accident Replacement warranty

The length of each warranty varies by rod series, as follows:

Rod Series                   Manufacturer’s Defect             Non-fishing Accident Replacement

Ambush                         1 year                                                  1 year

Tracer                             1 year                                                  1 year

Hollow Point               1 year                                                  1 year

Aerius                             2 years                                                2 years

Suppressor                  2 years                                                2 years

Manufacturer’s Defect Warranty

We cover damage that occurs during normal fishing activities, or conditions, for craftsmanship or material defects. Rods that qualify under this warranty will be replaced free of charge. NOTE: We warranty the product, not the shipping. 

Non-fishing Accident Replacement Warranty

Accidents happen, and we do not like our customers to be disappointed. We realize that not everyone is ready to invest in another full-price rod, so Old 18 offers a replacement program. This warranty is for rod damages not covered under the manufacturer’s defect warranty due to non-fishing activities or rods evaluated as special circumstances. We only require a one-time payment for a replacement (plus return shipping costs). Here is the cost of replacement for each rod series:

Rod Series                         One-time Cost                               Return Shipping

Tracer                                    $65                                                        Your Cost

New Ambush                      $80                                                        Your Cost

Hollow Point                       $90                                                        Your Cost

Aerius                                     $140                                                     Your Cost

Suppressor                          $150                                                     Your Cost

  • If we no longer sell the model you are replacing, we will offer you the most comparable current model.
  • For those who make an Accident Replacement claim on the older Ambush series (gray blank), Old 18 will give you a credit to be used towards any rod purchased at retail price. The credit cannot be combined with any sales or coupons. The credit amount will be based on your original purchase price:

                                               Your Purchase Price      Your Credit

                                               $60 or more                          $60

                                               Less than $60                        Your Original Purchase Price

All warranty claims must meet the following requirements:             ​

  • The claimant must be the original owner.
  • Proof of purchase is required.

Other Notes:

  • The customer is required to pay for return shipping costs to our facility.
  • We do not cover broken rod guides when shipping is involved. However, a local shop can repair guides for less than the cost of return shipping.
  • Upon receiving the rod, we will perform an internal inspection to verify the claim.

We strive to contact the claimant within ten business days after receipt of your rod.

To initiate the claim, please complete the form at https://old18.com/warranty-form/. Please ship the damaged rod to the following address:
