Thanks again Scott for the heads up on these cat killers

Unfortunately these days, some times Chinese is your only choice and that sucks. I steer clear of Chinese anything if there is another option...sure you can buy a Chinese Abu for half the price and I'm sure some are fine but I prefer the ones made in Sweden. If they were both created equal then there would be no market for the Swedish models. I buy my shoes and boots made in the good ol USA , my guns are made in America and I would never bet my life on a Chinese firearm. my knives are German and US, my watch is Swiss, my sunglasses are Italian, my tools are made in the USA, my truck is made in America, I'm sure certain components are sourced from Asia but that's out of my control. Hopefully Trump can get that changed. I like quality and I'm willing to pay a little extra to get it. I used to buy Chinese but I got tired of it always breaking and having to throw it away. Good luck with those reels but I wouldn't rush to get rid of your Abus if they are stamped Sweden before knowing for sure if the chinas are going to hold up. azn flush_2

Not to change the subject but I'm still very interested in seeing a photo of your 5# box anchor with special angle tines. I just want to find a way to save my back from hoisting my #35 box anchor. Here is the angle and height of one of the ones I built.
Please advise where I've gone wrong. Thanks, Curtis

You nailed it Curtis! That box anchor looks perfect to me. No doubt it's made in the USA! flag
