Did you know? ....that Abu thought of selling the Abumatics under the name ABU Viking but unfortunately a Viking reel already existed at the time. So they renamed it to Abu-matic. However a first announcement of the company in 1957 to dealers announces the Abu Viking. Below as proof , you find a photograph of this Abumatic 60 in an announcement sourced from Rullfakta website. Thanks Marcel for pointing this out to me.
Regarding this Viking reel above left , my friend Len Borgstrom has these insights.
