What concerns me is this...
When Gary Loomis is an owner or part owner of said company, then he brings his patents and protected technology into it. But like with Shimano-G.Loomis, they bought what the company had at the time, and when Gary left finally he took his advancing technology with him into North Fork.
And now, with Gary no longer being an owner, what does this mean for his patents and protected rod technology?
According to what I have already read, the new Russian-only company bought what North Fork and Edge was producing at the time, but will Gary continue to bring his knowledge and talent and protected technology into SOMEONE else's company is the question???
How far would Gary or any of us go with a company solely owned by someone else? We can all see how that worked out with Shimano-G.Loomis.
