This is the reel mount from mine (upside down sorry). The numbers are 060007 and the reel was purchased new in about 2001 from memory. It says “Made in Sweden” in big letters on the side and this is probably the best indicator of where it was built
The build quality on these reels is fantastic.15/01/2013 at 7:58 pm #22426
Thanks heaps for your help.Ive brought some that wernt made in sweeden before ,never again.15/01/2013 at 8:00 pm #22427

Waitaki was doing so good… Dam will be spilling until some time in mid/end of Feb now, 1000cu for a while.
on the other hand, a guy caught a 34lb Salmon in the Taieri River… not fair! (confirmed)16/01/2013 at 2:07 am #22434
Shame about the waitaki Jezza,awsome to hear about the 34lber a pic on here would be good to see.16/01/2013 at 4:31 am #22435
I have seen the picture on the phone of a H&F employee, I will ask if they can upload it somewhere, but sadly i dont know the guy who caught it.
Looked like a hell of a fish though. not long, but very very deep.
