Dobyns reels are covered by a Limited 1 Year Warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. Dobyns will repair or replace your reel if a defect is found in workmanship or materials for a period of one year from the date of purchase. This warranty is limited to the original owner. If the damage is found to not be a defect in workmanship or material (missing parts, misuse either accidental or intentional, improper care or normal wear and tear), you will be contacted with a quote for the repair/replacement before repairs are started. Please present your sales receipt or proof of purchase when making your warranty claim.
