I'm glad someone posted this video.  I remember seeing it when it aired, and thought AT members might find it interesting.

 The other video of interest that comes to mind is the "How It's Made" episode of "Fishing Reels" featuring Penn International VSXs. Have to try to find that one too.

Here it is:

Saw this in person 18 mos ago with Dan, Sal, Dom and John in Philly when we toured the Penn plant April '16. I think part of my jaw is still on the floor there, but I didn't see it on the video....

Goes to show just how tough those Senators are. I’ll bet that reel was still goin strong after they torched it.
