How long a life do you expect to get out of a decent graphite rod? Looking back to the late 70's- early 80's when carbon fiber rods became readily available to no, it seems that for me any rod, treated well but used consistently has about a 10 year life span. What got me thinking of this was that I just discovered a pet 9' GL3 steelhead rod I was spooling up for tomorrow is developing a gap at the fore grip/ reel seat transition that opens and closes with the blank loading. Not good. That got me thinking about other favorites that died of natural causes. I guess the glues etc only have so long a life span. What kind of life spans are you guys getting?
