    Just to clarify, in my post above I said -
    "Breaks in the lower sections are harder to understand. Assuming the tippet is appropriate, and you are fighting fish with the first three sections straightened out, breaks would seem to be a result of manufacturing anomalies."

    I believe using "inappropriate tippet", i.e over-rated for the rod, can certainly lead to failure in the lower sections, independent of any manufactuing or design issues.
