Quiz for all: Spinning reels currentlky Made in the USA

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
This is part quiz, and part tip to buy American It's inspired by another thread asking what reels are actually made in the US today.

The question is: There is a spinning reel that is still being made in the USA today other than ZB, Twinspin, and Penn Torque spinning. Can you tell what it is?

Nope, US company, yes, but reels are made in China. Here's an except from their FAQ:

Quote:
Originally, U.S. Reel reels were made in St. Louis, MO. However, due to U.S. federal tax laws (with disincentives to produce in the U.S.) and other cost differentials, reels are now made in China, where many of the highest quality reels from the major brands are produced. Unlike many of these other brands, U.S. Reel is an American company with its products innovated and designed in the US.

I was third in line. It took me a while. I was going to say Alvin first...lol

I just looked at the Schematic of the S2500. Pretty simple. Alan, you have another mission.

lol I wish I had enough time to fish and review every spinning reel out there. I think I need professional help. I might have some sort of spin reel fetish

Cheers

I need to call up Ardent and confirm the weight vs. capacity on the S2500. 120 yards of 10lb mono and 15 oz is a heavy reel for that line class.

It seems to be in comparison to the ML2000-3000 Fin Nor Megalites.

I believe American Classic Reel (?) manufactures (in Utah) a copy of the Cardinal spinning reels.

I could be wrong.

When first I came aboard I was fascinated with winches that could throw amazing distances.

I drifted back though, to interest in spinners.
