This reel is painted like a Dam Quick from Germany and sounds like a 70ís Garcia spinning reel from France. This one was made in Hong Kong. I didnít know that fishing reels were made in Hong Kong.

Cheesy I talk with every part I send out and each reel I repair so that they perform at the top of their game. Cheesy

Wow. Handle, paint, drag knob all make this look like a Hong Kong knock-off of a DAM Quick!

Nice one.  I have an 870 which is the next size down.  If I'm not mistaken, South Bend was a distributor of German DAM Quicks for a while.

Pretty sure you're right about the SB-DAM Q connection.  Have seen schematics of various DAM Q reels on SB paper.

  The four 800 series models with the black finish were made in Hong Kong,they also made the 300 series there along with most of the 700a series.The 700 series were made in Japan,they also had 740,835 and 850 models that were built in Japan with a ball bearing on the pinion gear and were painted maroon,these were somewhat better built.The 900 reels seems to be Gladdings attempt to keep a high end reel on the market after they lost the rights to market the Quicks.
