JIm, speaking form experience on trying to warranty gears. Unless you can find some other way to hint a potential failure (bent spool for example :D ) They will most likely say that the gears were either A: setup incorrectly or B: say they were improperly broken in. I got the second answer a couple times, and it's your word against their lie.

BTW the seller of the gears don't warranty them, they have to go back to the manufacturer for their "analysis"

Yea I took the 3rd back to nv4wd and kevin said they only warrantee for 6mos! now he tells me.. Thats stupid and yea he asked if I broke em in right...yup as he told me...only in town driving for 2 months before I went anyplace...but still all the times I changed my gear oil it was heavy with metalic particles...like metalflake paint, so something was not right from the getgo, it even looked to me like to much heel contact...but I dont think I will be taken care of and that sucks...so I will wait until he finds out from his gearman then go from there...one tooth broke off so deep that I can see a hole in the ring...looks fricken hollow...I thought they were solid. :(

There's snow but it's real soft and slushy-not getting cold enough at night to put a freeze on the top. I have not been on the butte meadows side at all this year so maybe it's better over there but I know there's only 2-3 feet at philbrook right now. And it ain't snowing yet tonight.

hmmm, did you leave the third with him? I can check the pattern if you want. It should still be representative of how it was set. I guess if his gear guy says it was set up wrong, hopefully he will pass that onto you with a new set of gears.
