Re: Orvis to Acquire the Scientific Anglers and Ross Reels Businesses from 3M
There seems to have been minor confusion over the source of Orvis's lines prior to their current acquisition of SA. To clarify and fact-check I simply logged in with their responsive "On Line Chat Service" with a fly fishing specialist in their product line. Below is a portion of our chat:
Have not Orvis lines been built by SA to Orvis's specs even before this great new acquisition? And the "coating" Orvis applies; is this a post production external extra slick proprietary finish rather than the taper producing coating?
Stefan F.: SA was making our lines and we
just applying the proprietary coating not the taper producing coating,
: What is that coating called and is it significantly different from SA'a AST?
Stefan F.: Its the same as the Wonderline coating we had previously, it just not going by that name and it is different from SA AST
