Warranty

Buy all your fishing gear online from Sambo Fishing in confidence - we offer a full One Year Warranty on all items purchased through our store.
What does our warranty cover?

Our warranty applies to any items that are dead on arrival or there's a manufacturing fault with them.
In these cases, Sambo Fishing will repair, replace or refund the product ( at our discretion, depending on the situation ) at no expense to the customer, including all related shipping charges. Please note that in these situations we will require proof of purchase. As is standard practice for online selling, we reserve the right to inspect and assess the returned defective product first to determine the warranty required.
What is NOT covered by our warranty?

Situations in which our standard warranty DOES NOT apply:
- RODS
- Due to the nature of the material, carbon fibre / graphite rods have sensitive tips and must be treated as such. No refund / replacement will be given if a rod was tested or used incorrectly and broken. Instances of incorrect testing / usage include: "high sticking" ( pointing the rod straight up so that only the tip bends or bringing the rod past a 90° angle with the ground ), pulling back on snagged line, overtightening reel seats, pulling on the tip with excessive force, etc.
- No refund / replacement will be given if any unauthorised repairs were done to the product
- No refund / replacement will be given if there's a fault caused by misuse or normal wear and tear
- No refund / replacement will be given if we are not contacted within the timeframes specified in the warranty
- REELS
- No refund / replacement will be given if there is corrosion due to salt water present inside the reel

No refunds/returns will be issued if the item arrives damaged yet the product has been signed for, indicating it was received in 'good order'. You must check the product arrived in acceptable condition prior to signing the courier form or collecting the parcel at the post office.
