St. Croix Premier Rod Warranty Question

11 posts in this topic

I have a Premier series St. Croix rod that I have had a few years. Recently an insert on my second eye from the bottom fell out and I was wondering if anyone knows what St. Croix's warranty policy is in terms of sending it back to them? I have had the rod for a few years.

Thanks,

Michael

I just picked up a Premier. Came with a 5-year warranty. Could check their HSOforum about how to return it.

There are detailed instructions on their HSOforum. I had to return an Avid last year. Aside from the expensive shipping charges, the transaction went quickly and smoothly.

With a Premier, you will more than likely need a receipt unless you registered the rod when you bought it. If in doubt, call them. I had a question and their customer service was great on the phone.

If you call there, they will tell you everything you need to know. You have to pay to ship it there, and send a check for $20 to ship it back. Or you can drive to Park Falls Wisconsin and they will fix it there wink . I love their poles, just not crazy on how to get them fixed when they break! You shouldnt have any problem if you didnt registar it, there is a serial number printed just above the cork handle an inch or so, that has a build date in it for them to determine how old the rod is.

With the shipping and handling charges what they are, you might want to see if there is a rod builder in the area that will replace the guide for you for a fee. You can check with local bait shops to see if they have anyone they can recommend. I have done a few for folks and what I charge is less than the shipping charges that some have posted.

That is true if it has a serial number. I forget exactly when they started putting serial #s on them, but the one I had replaced did not have one.

They started putting it on there in 01. The premier if it is that old then it doesnt have warranty and will cost you an additional $30 ontop of shipping charges to get it replaced. I am doing it right now, thats why I know about it.

Suggestion! You can save yourself a lot of hassle and cost and by going up to a shop that sells rod components and buy the same size guide, pop out the ceramic and super glue it in.

Actually that is what I decided to do and it cost me .95 for a small tube of super glue.

    • Eaves would have been nice, better to the ducks than someone else. They beat us last go around but we were way better and Gibson won the game by himself.
    • Wow...Ducks get Eaves from Dallas for a conditional 2nd round pick...pretty cheap rental IMO..where were the Wild on this deal...oh ya we don't have a 2nd round pick 
    • Update:     Put some fresh gas in, sprayed the carb valve with some cleaner and cleaned the filter.  Also adjusted the idle speed up a bit. Runs great again!   Thanks for the advice and help everyone! 
    •   Nope...I think that is an original Bear55 Quote but Yogi Berra would be jealous if he were still alive.   Agree on the Blackhawks...when the season ends they will probably be the favorite to win the cup IMO so it will take an upset by any team to knock them off...would love for the Wild to be the ones to do so....it is getting very interesting as the trade deadline and playoffs time approach!
    • Out here (Virginia) our lakes are dirty and warm, and from what I understand, saugeyes thrive in those conditions. Our walleyes are all stocked since very few of our lakes have suitable spawning habitat and there is little to no natural reproduction.   Really looking forward to catching a saugeye just so I can cross it off my list!

    • Funny, that is the same face I get when I think of people voting for a reality tv star in as president. Worse yet he is some kind of billionaire, like the general public should ever trust one of those guys in public office.
    • More like Yogi the Bear but if I stole his quote my apologies.  Have to get that Chicago gorilla off our back, don't care if they win 4 of the next 5 cups, we just need one and I will be a happy camper.

      I'm not liking that they found some decent youth to play with Towes, we need to pounce before they fill in their gaps with depth and scoring again.
    • I am up to 27 in ND so far.  Waiting for more snow to melt.  Cold weather and deep snow makes the deer really group up out here and makes for easy shed hunting, but is really tough on the deer.  The 4th pic is one from some round bales that the deer were destroying earlier this year.   The biggest I find year to year is generally around that mid 60" range.  And I found that one (first pic) in early Janruary.  So hopes of finding a bigger one this year is low haha.
    • The only Merc I saw in Belize was on a parted out boat 75ft from water. Otherwise it was 70% Yammy's, 15% Honda's, 10% Suzzy's and a 5% hodgepodge of Evinrudes, Tohatsu, ect.......
