I saw a post from other site about new Brawn spinning reel from Tuff Tackle in Australia.
They claims the max drag is upto 110 lb and the reel is smoother than Stella or Saltiga.
It was too good to believe and I made some research of the company.

Here are discussion of Tuff reels on other site.

It seems the reel is assembled in Australia and many parts are coming from China.
It really doesn't matter the parts are made in China or in Australia as long as quality is there.
I always say good products sell themselves. If the reel is as good as advertised, they have buyers. We see local shop claims they are testing similar spinning reels in the US. They probably have the same source in China.

When I visited Beijing International Tackle show this year, I saw many booths selling spinning reels. The prices are incredibly low. I was wondering how they make quality reels if the cost is so low. And also, I saw jigs/poppers with quality painting job.
In my opinion, we are going to see quality reels, rods, jigs, poppers and other fishing tackle from China in the near future. It is like to see Korea about 20 - 30 years ago.

When I go to Beijing Tackle show in 2012, I'll pay more attention to reels to see any new development in China.
