#741, "RE: Okuma VS or Nemesis Casting Reels"
In response to In response to 14


          

>so what's your point?

Just putting the "made in China" thing in perspective. The "made in China" stigma is comparable to what was said about the quality of Japanese manufactured products decades ago. Japanese made products were once considered der crappiest of der crap...

China now has the industrial/engineering/technological capability to produce (or reproduce...or bootleg) goods of outstanding quality and precision. The quality of these goods is most likely up to snuff with Japanese standards since they're contracting with the Chinese factories for so many items. Japanese labor is expensive so they export the work overseas. As manufacturing technologies improve and become even more readily available (and as long as there's a cheap source of labor), the gap between the quality of Japanese made vs Chinese/Malaysian/etc products is gonna diminish. It won't be long before the quality of some Chinese manufactured goods will be considered equal to that of Japanese made products.

That said, I'd still rather fish with my Chronarchs and Scorpions than Okumas. Or a Saltiga over a Catalina...
