If you were in the market for a new rod, reel or other equipment would it matter if it was made in the U.S. or not?

It would matter, but would be WAY down my list of worries. First and foremost is cost/performance ratio.

Country of manufacture is about equal to aesthetics to me. Important, but way less so than cost and function.

It matters.

I'm staging a rod building project right now. 100% made in U.S.A and in my basement. I got my hands on a couple of fiberglass blanks; gonna make me a pack rod.

I also picked one of these up. Spruce creek dry fly, loaded with silk line which was made in France. Is made in France better then made in China?

It would be a consideration but not a determining factor.

I'm pretty sure all mine are made in china. TFO, mid range Orvis, Low end St. Croix, Cabela's. I do have a versitex, but the blanks are probably foreign. Same for my handmade loomis.

My ex girlfriend was made in china too, and she worked just fine.

I try to buy from countries that pay their workers a living wage and have some degree of envirnomental protections. Its getting very tough to do that, though.

All other things being equal I would purchase US made goods. Like many of the other posters, though, country of origin is a low priority for me.

My cheap combo outfits are made overseas, but all my St. Croix's are made in the U.S.A!
