It seems to me that everytime a WalMart arrives in a new town, the rich business owners try to stop them while the working middle class can't wait to shop there!
PS - I apologize to the "American Workers" ...... I didn't really mean they are all fat, stupid, and lazy! I was trying to make a point about labor cost? My Helios was made by a American Craftsman and I'll keep that rod for the rest of my life! ...... unless they move the operation offshore and make the same Helios for under $100?
the only thing American made on that rod is the blank, everything else (cork, guides ) are from over seas (cheap) keep buying that high end china stuff...you are paying for the warrentee not the rod. rod cost is less than $100.00.
I am a hard working American that owns a fly shop and goes to wally world !!
Oh and I'm disabled too !!
I did not escape.....they gave me a day pass!
