rods. People who use them seem to like them and recommend them.

One noticeable incident with a Burkheimer blank was a snapping sound when a 9' 10 weight broke in three pieces on a tarpon strike in Mexico! Could have happened with any rod. The guy striking did a very good job of stressing the rod to the extreme. I had the chance to fish it before it broke. A very nice rod indeed.

This is the rod before it broke
