    I will try not to GC, I cringe every time I see someone grab a loaded rod, I have broken 2 fly rods by high sticking them, **** rods anyway.

    At least you didn't chuck a tantrum! :cool: I like your attitude! Do you think it may not have happened if you had not held the rod part way up with your hand? It seemed to break immediately when you grabbed it. I think you may affect the balance of the rod which would lose a lot of shock absorption and you would give it a weak point (where you held it) where it will break. Although on saying that, it did break above where you held it.
    cheers
