Rod Warranty

Zziplex rods and blanks made in the Century factory are warranted as follows.

  • Please register your rod with us within 30 days of purchase and keep your proof of purchase for any warranty claim. You can register online here or via QR code on the Rod Registration card that came with your rod.
  • The warranty applies to the original owner and is given in addition to your statutory rights under the laws of England. The benefit of the warranty may not be assigned or transferred to any other subsequent owner.
  • The warranty is that a rod or rod blank is free from defects when supplied by an authorised dealer. In the unlikely event of a manufacturing defect, we will, at our discretion, repair or replace the product free of charge. In other cases, a charge will be made to cover labour and materials used in the product. Please use the contact form with a description of the work required and we will respond as quickly as possible.
  • Zziplex rod blanks are also made available to custom builders and in these cases a warranty claim is limited to the rod blank.
  • The warranty does not cover wear and tear from using the rod or loss covered by insurable risks such as theft, loss, fire, accidental user damage (car doors, pier wall, standing on part etc).
