Wow... You can’t stop change or find a better company with long term goals. We all will be watching what happens. I’ve had good luck with Tufline, hoping for the same in the future.

There are still hooks made in Norway available, new old stock on the bay, mrpeanut, and new manufacture at Mustad Fishing Europe. The wire and machinery for hook production in the orient all comes from Norway.

Almost every time one company acquires another I end up disappointed in that product later. Hope that is not the case here...

Yes some of their mono is surprisingly good stuff-not available here in Canada so I had to order it from Bulgaria (seriously)

When Shimano acquired Powerpro I was thinking the same.

There has been no drop off in quality and production with PP.
