They bought suntour and used to make really good fishing reels. I have heard that Shimano was going to crack down un un authorized sales of their parts I didn't realize they were going to make us consumers grab our ankles when they did it. I really miss suntour they made some great stuff. My first Bianchi was all suntour. My friend still owns a Nishiki with suntours I find it a joy to work on it.
