Re: Albright Products
Ditto on all of the above about Albright's marketing. The rods, however, are very well built in Korea with powerful and sophisticated tapers. The new rods' reel seats are US made REC as are the recoil guides. Their top end EXR and EXT at $179 (again, forget the alleged MSRP) are unparalleled values. I have cast the EXT #8 (the only size it is available in) and it is superior to, for example, any TFO in both action and build quality. Similarly, the EXR is available in #5 only and I have not cast one of them. If the long term viability of a company is important to you for warranty purposes, then I might be a bit sceptical.
