Abu Sweden Vs. China

Rate this topic

10 posts in this topic

None of the BCX models are worth the money, IMHO. I've opened up some of them to pull parts and I haven't been impressed.

 

Any reel that says "Made in Sweden" on the side should be a quality product.

thats a very broad question....

 

Very good casters out of the box....

 

Most are still made in Sweden except some 6600 and the 7000-7500 reels...

 

Don't know what you mean by cutoff dates and models...

Yep...that is especially true with the black 7000CL BiG Game. There was some transitional period where things were going to Taiwan with the 7000 sized reels...Look for Sursflinger's posts...

The new 7000 series reels made in China are pretty nice. There is a big difference between these and the BCX series. As far as Im concerned the BCX isnt a Abu but the 7000 series is built like a Abu and seems to be quality.

If your unsure, than any Abu 6500 with the dual cast control knobs will do you good. You won't have to worry about where they were made.smile.gif

It's too bad ABU doesn't sell kit reels, kind of like a Heath Kit for fishermen.

 

Some dealers are assembling reels from factory parts. I could do that. Sell me a bag of Swedish parts. I could mark mine "Assembled in Beaverton".wink.gif
