When they buy the competition they get to raise the price and discontinue things that took away from sales that they deem to be in their way without regard to what some of us want and use. It becomes all about the numbers. Sales that may have been great on a certain product for one player does not mean the buyer of that product see's it that way. Over all I think it's bad, no one that I know of has purchased the competitor and lowered the price to the consumer. They lower the cost to make and sometimes that effects the products quality yet they often raise the prices to help accelerate ROI. It dos open the door for new players but how many people are looking to start manufacturing fishing gear is a whole other question.
