“We’ve found another material to replace our bronze bushings, the material is called Vesconite,” says Ross Reels CEO Craig Baker of the company’s redesigned Colorado Fishing Reel. “It is an engineered polymer designed specifically for underwater load-bearing and bushing applications. It is used in high-speed trains, oil rigs, water pumps, deep-sea drills, and that kind of thing. We have been testing it for like a year or so in all of our products and putting it in the sand and jamming it together and running. The new Colorado is the first in the Ross lineup to use the Vesconite as the bushing material. We believe it is something that’s just going to last longer and perform better.”
“We don’t do much sourcing from outside the USA but your product is so fantastic we can’t resist,” Ross Reels and Abel Reels Accountant Ken Watson enthuses.
