Whats the difference between the two?
All I've been able to find is the mark 6's were made in England while the Mark 7's are now made in Korea...is that really the only difference? I feel like I'm missing something here......
The mk7 is now discontinued? What's different from the mk7 and the new ones? Just just the made in England part?Most MkVI's were made in Korea too. There was a short run of British MkVIs before production went offshore but they are scarce.
Mk VI's have a ported handle plate while the MkVIIs returned to a solid face similar to the popular MkIV.
The MkII is now discontinued. Production has moved back to Alnwick for the current Bougles.
They are all great reels.
The MkVI has a plastic handle. The Korean reel handles are white and the British are a medium brown but all VI handles are plastic.The MK VI also had the ported winding plate and the wooden handle.
