Is Abu garcia Really made by Pinnacle

Recommended Posts

i heard that sil-star and pinnacle make a lot of tackle, including Abu Garcia. Does anybody know if that is true? :-?

Once and for all ... Shimano is made by Pinnacle, Daiwa is made by Banax, Abu Garcia is manufactured by Okuma!

How Garcia has managed to stay in business 89 years is beyond me considering the junk they've attempted to peddle as fishing reels all those years.

Go with the Silstar/Shimano Trevor.   :D

I've been using Abu reels for decades now without any issues whatsoever.  The Revo reels are the BOMB!

However, I feel no need to bash other brands simply because I like Abu reels.  Seems like a waste of brain cells to even bother.

Chevy, Ford, Dodge, Canon, Nikon, Minolta. It's a matter of personal preference. Take advice from those that use them, try them all, make up your own mind ... when you get to $75 or more for a reel, they're for the most part, all good ...
