All of the discussion about outsourcing to China (Japan does it, too, btw) made me wonder, just who owns all of this stuff?

So I did a little bit of internet snooping, and...boy, was I in for a surprise.

I already knew about Pure Fishing, but there's much more.

I won't try to reproduce all of the buying/selling of corporations here, but suffice it to say, it all reads like geneology. For those that are interested, Google names like, Pure, Pflueger, Shakespeare, Penn, Stren, Abu, Berkley, K2, and Jardin (which is where all the ownership seems to be).

The landscape seems to change almost weekly.:confused2:

The head of the snake is Jarden. they own all that and alot more. they are trying to buy all the specialty markets. ain't it funny that the same company owns penn and abu...they also own mr. coffee, foodsaver vacuum sealer, crockpot, ball canning,holy crap the list goes on forever.
