    I just purchased two Abu 7000 C3's. I noticed that they were made in Taiwan. Do they make a 7000C3 that was made in Sweden? And if so is there a difference in materials or construction? These reels have been flawless so far and have met all my expectations. I just can't help but wonder if there is a big difference in how they were made. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Eric

    The only thing I can think of is that it is labor is cheaper over there in East Asia.
