 Manufacturer’s Defect Warranty
We cover damage that occurs during normal fishing activities, or conditions, for craftsmanship or material defects. However, we will only warranty a purchase one time; Multiple attempts to claim from a single purchase will be denied. 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 SeriesOne-Time CostReturn Shipping

BUOYANCY$160YOUR 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 any older series rod, 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:
