    CNC is a manufacturing process, computer controlled machines work on a piece of metal, or whatever, and finish it to a specific shape, can be expensive bar stock ally or cheaper cast stuff but the finished item is neater, more precise in finish, finer, etc.. depending on the cleverness of the programme written to control the machine.. well. ish.. Here.. Numerical control - Wikipedia

    Thanks Lepirate, I was kinda getting this from another thread, the manufacturing process has become more advanced. So we should all be benefit from these advances in technology, 20 quid reels being just one example. Will rods be the next example, I accept that many are already being made in Asia. Or are you suggesting there's something we should be wary of ? genuine question.

    I have a couple of specifically Chinese rods (rather than UK/USA branded but made in China) and they are pretty good.. Over the last 10 or so years the quality has been going up. Now, rather than just developing a rod for a western company, the Chinese companies, particularly Leichi Industrial amongst a couple of others, have been doing their own R+D to produce rods, lines and other gear and doing it quite well... To the point the prices are rising for their stuff.. I think it won't be long before they start getting real notice in their own right.. Already they are starting to offer some pretty good guarantees and, from dealing with them, they seem to be very serious in having satisfied customers.
