Default Broke my Surf Rod

I was fishing at the Destin bridge last weekend an hooked into a big red. Well during the fight the fish went under the boat and my rod snapped. It is a 2 piece penn surf rod that I bought less than 1yr ago. It broke at the interface of the two pieces. The hollow part of the connection just gave out. My question is..what do I do now? I bought it at Bass Pro and was wondering if it would be worth my time to drive out there. Anybody had any experience with exchanging a broken rod with bass pro or penn?

Policies can be different from different stores but BPS will probably warranty it for you

I broke a couple of Penn Power Stick surf rods. BPS took them back, no questions asked! Penn stands behind their product line.

Pretty sure Penn will replace it, but it will be a mail thing. What Pompano Joe said.

Same thing happened to me with 2 ultralight rods. I bought them at Outcast. Outcast replaced them no questions asked.

Ditto. Shop local. Our local business owners need it and have good return policies. All of my Christmas shopping will be done at locally owned businesses.

I have some where around 20 rod/reel for fishing offshore, inshore, brackish, and fresh water. I have two boats to do all this fishing (I'm retired). One thing I don't have is a 2-piece fishing rod.

Bass Pro in Destin did replace an Abu Garcia 7'6" Veritas MH that was only 3- months old. Not sure what they'd do with one that's a year old...
