        Should have changed their name from innovations to Immitations years ago.

        Tatty ones at that, they fall apart easier than Arsenal's late season results don't they Clive.

                makes you wonder what the motive is, with zebco already biggest tackle manufacturer in the world?
                you can't see them selling preston and browning poles at the same time.

                  Preston Innovations have already started bringing out pole cups identical to the ones Browning brought out a year or two ago,so wether this was a marketing ploy,or just the usual copying of other manufacturers gear is anybodies guess.but for any company to buy another that is not 100 percent original in product design,makes you wonder if its more money than sense.

                    i'm a big fan of browning gear but it's not easy to buy in the uk, i.e I've just waited six weeks for a pole section,
                    I know a lot of the smaller shops shy away from using them because everything has to come from hamburg and the shops are expected to cover the postage costs which in turn has to be passed on to the costumer making most of the more expensive items more than list price, so perhaps the idea is to use the existing preston uk distribution to sell their gear?
                    I hope so because the poles, rods and luggage I've seen are spot on for the money.

                        If the 2 main issues which are lack of quality control/lack of fieldtesting before release,and poor customer service can be addressed,there should be no major hiccups.
