South Korea - I thought you had that Kim dude making them in the Nuke factory, cause I hear they can jack some fish up! (Just not for me... you have to wet a line in order to get bit!)
Ok Couldn't resist... lack of sleep gets me loopy sometimes!
As much as I'd love to see rods made in the USA my bank account likes the Overseas ones.. The way I see it - if a rod sells for $200, about $150 of that money is staying in the U.S. between Manufacturer, Dealer Rep, Shipping and retailer... most of the money stays domestic.
If everything I bought put 75% of my money into the US market I'd be thrilled!
