I'm trying to find out where my Orvis BBSIII is made. I looked under the reel seat, but didn't see anything. Does anyone know where to look? I thnk I threw the box away.

If your reel doesn't clearly have "Made in England" engraved on the side of the reel foot then it is one that is manufactured in China.

The Battenkill Barstock reels are still excellent reels no matter where they were produced.

It is indeed a nice reel, but I would like to have one from England just for collecting purposes.
