Abu Feralite Mark 7 vintage match rod

More of a request than an information blog. We have just listed this Abu Feralite Mark 7 match rod.

It’s similar to the iconic All England Mark 5 in the metallic graphite grey colour and style, but different from the red-brown Mk6.

BUT the rod and the bag are both labelled “Made in Scotland.”

The question is, who made these rods for Abu in the 1970s?

Immediately Milbro comes to mind, a true Scottish company, or possibly an early Daiwa factory, but we don’t know, do you?

Any information is welcome, please email john@thomasturner.com if you can help.
