1 Year Limited Warranty
OANNES fishing rods are constructed with ‘Skill and Care’ and are extensively tested to ensure that each product not only meets – but exceeds your expectations.
Your OANNES fishing rod comes with a One Year Limited Warranty against defects in materials and/or workmanship for consumer use only, excluding rental or commercial use. For all Australian consumers our warranty is not intended to limit a consumer’s rights under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010.
The warranty period is effective for all new rods from the date the product is purchased from an authorised OANNES dealer, to the original purchaser, for a period of 12 months within Australia and New Zealand.
This limited warranty does not cover any claims arising from normal wear and tear, accident, improper/misuse of the product, negligence or lack of adherence to the recommended servicing/maintenance for the product. If OANNES determines that the product has been modified or unauthorised alterations have been made to the rod, this warranty will be considered void.

It is advised you adequately insure the goods and retain all shipping documents.
OANNES Rod Maintenance and Safety
Do not exceed the recommend line rating for your rod.
Never ‘High Stick’ your rod – Over bending your rod when fighting or landing a fish is commonly referred to high sticking. Always maintain a maximum load angle of 45 – 60 degrees when fighting a fish and these parameters should never be exceeded.
If your lure or rig becomes snagged always keep the rod pointed towards the snag and walk backwards keeping tension on the line. More than likely you will lose your tackle, but you cannot break your rod with this procedure.
Like a diamond, carbon fibre rods are incredibly strong but can be brittle – Be careful not to drop or hit them on hard surfaces, keep away from fans and don’t close car doors on them.
Fishing rods are designed to evenly distribute the stress over the entire rod blank – Never place your hand high above the reel seat to assist the rod, as this will actually increase stress and cause the rod to break. Always maintain a maximum load angle of 45 – 60 degrees and never high stick it.
Graphite carbon rods are excellent conductors of electricity – Never use a carbon fibre fishing rod during an electrical storm or near power lines.
After using your fishing rod in a saltwater environment, always wash your rod well with fresh clean water as soon as you can and pay particular attention to the guide rings and reel seat. You can apply light reel grease to on the guide metal – but use it sparingly.
Use caution when transporting your rod and always disassemble it and place the rod in the rod case during transport.
Use caution when winding your line in and never pull the swivel through the guide tip as this will damage guide ring.
