Re: Anyone else having issues with Shimano / G Loomis Warranty Replacement

When I called to get one replaced in August, they advised there would be at least a 6 month wait and that was best case scenario. I ended up using American legacy fishing. They can't do warranties right now but if you buy a rod at full price, they will replace your broken one for free.

Here is the email below they sent me to confirm they would be sending me a new rod dated July 8th. On the same email they sent an attachment with Shimano order acknowledgement for the new rod. I thought maybe it was lost in the mail so I called them. They did not have an estimated time that they would send my replacement rod. I have called at least 3 to four times including recently with the same response of no estimated time. I had to wait on hold forever to actually talk to someone every time. I was always taken care of in the past but they have dropped the ball for sure and I am frustrated. This is my favorite Jig rod ever and is so fun to fish with. That rod was like a special attachment to my arm and now it is missing.

Are you posting on every available board to make a point? Theres something worldwide know as COVID19
and it's affecting all supply lines worldwide.

I've seen this on I believe three boards now....this particular rod shows an approximate date of Feb 2021 and that's an estimate. It could well be longer as components are hard to come by worldwide and has ALL mfgs have been having a hard time. Dan
