Re: Cabela's CGT or TQR
I've never had any salesmen at Cabelas push ANYTHING on me. They have a huge selection and fair prices for all levels of fly fishermen. Don't see anything wrong with their business model or their lineup.
Who cares if China makes all the cheap rods? Rolling sheets of graphite into tapered tubes is not a critical skill to the health, safety, or prosperity of a nation. So if people want cheaper goods and production moves overseas at a fraction of the labor costs, so be it. If people don't mind paying more for American jobs, you are free to spend your earnings how you choose. Today, in our global marketplace, the price of the rod says less and less about its performance. This nonsense about inexpensive fly rods being inferior needs to be challenged.
