The warranty covers cost for repair or replacement, if a reel breaks because of manufacturing defection, or design flaw. It includes wide range of strange problems, and please contact us freely if you see any problem.  Manufacturers will stop carrying parts after about 6 years of sales, and 6 years is good to be considered as the life of fishing reel.
