Fin-Nor Reels set the standard for big-game reels in our sport's earliest days. If you were chasing giant bluefin or black marlin during the 1950s, odds are you were using a Fin-Nor. Now, 72 years and 204 IGFA records later, W.C. Bradley Corporation, owner of fishing brands such as Van Staal and Quantum PT, stepped in and purchased Fin-Nor in 2005. The company's first offerings will be spinning rods and reels, but they plan on expanding into conventional big-game reels down the line. Until then, you'll find that the company's Ahab Offshore line of spinners emulates the high quality you expect from the Fin-Nor name.
