What makes Balzer equipment so special?
All equipment goes through years of thorough testing and improvements. Only the best materials are used and processed with the highest attention to detail. Our goal is to produce the best product using the best materials, following strict processes and procedures.

How do you ship your products?
We try to keep packaging material to a minimum but we also want to make sure that you receive your new gear undamaged and in a perfect condition. For that purpose, we ship all products wrapped/packed in recycled cardboard boxes or corrugated cardboard. Additionally, we use bubble wrap and air pockets to protect very sensitive and light fishing rods. 

What is your product warranty?
We offer a 24 month warranty on rods and reels, covering damage or loss as results of production mistakes, flaws or imperfections in materials.
