Recently, I was perusing Albright's web site. Previously, they had great sales on all of their fly rods and other supplies. I had been saving my money to buy an A-5 rod. While looking at it the other day, the prices of that rod have almost tripled from what they were. You could get an A-5 rod for under $300.00. Now all of a sudden, their new A-5 (which is called an A-5 ***new name) is over $550.00. All of their prices have increased dramatically. Has the company changed owners. Does anyone know why the "sudden" increase in prices with this company?
