Default Re: Orvis to Acquire the Scientific Anglers and Ross Reels Businesses from 3M

Jackster, I don't live in Manchester or Roanoke but I do believe that SA has made nearly all Orvis lines since Orvis ceased using some Cortland lines decades ago. SA makes lines for lots of companies; Wulff, (formerly) Hardy, Cabelas, even Sage before Farbank acquired RIO from the Vincents. When SA introduced their slick AST coating, they chose not to offer it on re-branded lines so Orvis devised their own coating and applied it to their SA built lines (I have this from a credible source). Of course, Orvis's current "golf ball dimple" lines are obviously identical in texture if not taper to their source companies product.

Now, they need not concern themselves with these issues any longer...but will SA continue to make lines for Orvis's erstwhile competitors?
