Maybe so, but the original owners seem to be back on track with *offering up (at $25 pre-paid) service for the "out of warranty" reels recently liquidated by Orvis and bearing the Redington branding. Consumer friendly in my book!
I'm curious how Reddington is going to keep track of which ones got liguidated where. I know I'll put up a fight if they want me to pay for repairs for a reel bought from Blue Northern, rather than the 2 places where these reels have been at extra deep disounts.
I would trust redington. Dealt with them alot in the shop when there were some problems with the initial runs. The original supplier substituted screws that were too short to attach the reel foot to the reel frame. They barely made thread to thread contact! They took care of anyone who was impacted, and by "took care of" I don't mean they sent them new screws. Also had a few personal claims (always watch your backcast on a cruiser ) taken care of speedily and completely.
