Re: What is important to you when buying gear?
1) Overall value, I don't mind paying $300 for a trout reel as long as I find $300 worth of value
2) Mfg reputation so when I decide its time to sell that $300 trout reel I get a decent price back.
3) Warranty , if I am spending top dollar on equipment piece of mind in a solid warranty helps
4) Prefer USA made
