Right now there seems to be a balance that has been reached with both the product line produced in S. Korea and the Alnwick product line. Those seeking the Hardy brand at a reduced cost have the Asian products and for the purist there are the British products.
Time will tell but I will consider the glass half full until I hear it hit the floor.
The entire Pure line is sold at Walmart and don't know why Pure would want to change a successful strategy. Expect to see the Hardy Grey line in the box stores and don't see anything wrong with that. The English made equipment will be interesting to watch and the Korean products will probably be downgraded but to what extent who knows.
Why the personal attack?
Socialism is for the people, not the socialist. You don't think they would subject themselves or their families to the wonderful things they do for us...do you?
