It's top secret.

Neither company makes anything, but they might
have things made exclusively for them. Products
are manufactured by independent companies and
relabeled.

Here is what I understand is going on with BPS.

1.  BPS has its own rod specs that they shop around to get the most attractive deal from various rod manufacturers.

2.  BPS has their logos and type settings used on the rods.

3.  Rod manufacturers can change during the years based on who is going to offer the most attractive fiancial deal to BPS and which rods perform the best.

Would think the same is true for all of BPS and Cabellas' products.

Follow the money!  ;)

I've had nothing but good experiences with BPS rods, I have three. I had one cabelas rod break but I think it was operator error and not the rod.

But who's making the Pflueger reels and running the factory? ;) ;)

Regardless, so far I like my Browning reels :)

I'm sure pure fishing is making those reels but not Pflueger itself.  Most of the models within the BPS/Browning line have little in common with any specific Pflueger reel in their line other than some internal machining.

Those new GM series reels at Gander Moutain have what look like ACS cast controls that are on Quantum reels.

Not to mention the same body styles, Burner logo, they say Performance tuned, and have the quantum symbol on the cast control knob.
