I own a Beulah Platinum Series Spey Rod. I love it! I don't care where they are made, the action is great and it has all the power I need. I broke a snake guide on the tip when I was bushwacking and I brought it down to their office. For $50 they went in back, got me a new tip and sent me on my way.
The $50 doesn't cover shipping and handling, because I brought it to them with no shipping. Their office is 5 blocks from mine. My guess is, it covers the costs of ordering replacement parts, shipping of those part to their office and a little margin. No big deal. I would expect nothing less.
Great company and a great warranty. As far as second hand rods go, I think the best thing you could do is give them a call. James is usually in his office (and if he's not, someone else will be) and you'll hear his policy straight from the horses mouth!
