Just read this. Looks as though they will be dropping a few reels (calcutta) off  the roster also. ~c~

   ??? ??? My only concern is that Shimano doesn't lose quality.  It's almost all I fish with. :smiley:  I'm curious to see what kind of business decisions and changes they make.  Not to sound too skeptical but, I almost hope they can remain two seperate companies.  I hate to change what "ain't broke".  ~sweat
