Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply and pics show the side plate that says "Made in Sweden" on the C4

I am going to call the guys at SouthWest parts in Dallas, they should know for sure.

If the reel says Made is Sweden, why would you doubt that?

Walmart, Academy, and a few other retailers are selling these versions in plastic, hanging on a peg hook reels. These are [censored] from China. I think the model is CS.

If you are really in doubt, go to Catfish Connection and go through the descriptions for the Abu's. It will give the country of origin. They sell just about all of them.

Wouldn't doubt it then but have not seen the latest model and who knows when they will switch it out with a China version.

On the Garcia Website it doesn't clearly state or show the image above that I pulled from Amazon which my have been from a prior version
