Century Game Rod Warranty

Century has made fine fishing rods for over 30 years and we go to great lengths to ensure that what we make is serviceable and fit for purpose. We also recognise that accidents happen and in the interests of prevention rather than cure we issue a Registration & Care document with each rod that gives considerable information on looking after your rod. If you read and follow the practical guidance in the Registration & Care document – then you will probably never need to read much further

Century operates an Integrated Management System which is governed by ISO9001; 2008 Quality, ISO14001: 2004 Environmental and OHSAS 18001: 2007 Health & Safety. We are the only fishing tackle company in the world to have these annually audited accreditations. This means we have total control over what we make in composites and have detailed traceable supply lines and manufacturing records.

  • For your Century Warranty to become effective you must register your rod with us within 30 days of purchase. You can also register on line and we recommend using the registration form on this website. The Century Registration & Care document has a post paid card for your convenience if you prefer this method.
  • The Century warranty applies to the original owner and is given in addition to your statutory rights under the laws of England. The benefit of the warranty may not be assigned or transferred to any other subsequent owner.
  • It is important that the original owner retains original proof of purchase. Registration with Century is not proof of purchase.
  • The Century warranty does not cover ordinary wear and tear or loss covered by normal insurable risks such as theft, loss, fire, trapped in car doors or crushing.
  • Century reserves the right to alter handling charges without notice.
  • Century makes its rod blanks available to custom builders and our warranty is limited to the blank in the event of a claim.
  • A handling charge and an individual section charge will apply to each claim. Details on the charges are shown below.
