Graphite fly rods are amazingly strong for how little they weight. That being said, no fly rod is unbreakable. Ceiling fans, trolling motors and crazy fish antics can snap a tip on even the best of fly rods. For this reason, we offer the option of pre-purchasing a replacement tip for your Red Truck Diesel 1090-4 fly rod. We even have an extra sleeve in the rod sock just for this option. This way, if you do break your rod’s tip, you can reach for a backup and be back casting in just minutes. Believe us, it’s worth it.
