: ABU Overview
Garcia made in USA, Killwell made in New Zealand, UK Milbro and
Norwegian Asbojorn Horgard
(after the steel models) always needed protecting from damage during
transport and ABU chose to do this with heavy plastic tube and later multi
section cloth bags, some with pine stick inserts and even on model (The
Gothia) with an internal to the bag, plastic tube.
Simply the best and by far most exclusive, expensive form of protection in
the world of fishing tackle manufacturers, was given for ABU s
delicate, expensive Carnon Fibre, Carbolite 67 flyrod here. It
was a spun, threaded aluminium heavy duty tube with internal cloth bag to
protect the rod from scratches..
