Make a Claim

If your rod should break during its free replacement time period, file an online warranty claim. If it is clear the damage was due to manufacture defect or component failure, we will replace your rod FREE. A nominal shipping fee may apply. This part of the warranty is not intended to cover accidents, abuse, neglect or normal wear and tear. Kistler Rods reserves the right to void any warranty claim.

If it is unclear as to the cause of the damage, we still want to make it right by you, our customers so we will contact you and discuss options such as discounted repair, or replacement.  Obviously we can’t cover screen doors or clumsy feet, but we do want to get you back on the water with a Kistler as soon as possible.

To process a warranty claim efficiently, please completely fill in the Warranty Claim Information Form below. Within 24 hours (during the week) our warranty department associates will be in contact with you via email or phone about your warranty options.
