    I not 100%. But I think the mk1 had a rosewood reel seat and the newer model black anodised.

    I owned a mk 1 10ft 7# many moons ago and it was rosewood seat,

    There was a difference in the decal font between the Mk I and Mk II Enigmas, but I don't know about the Mk III. The Mk. I was finer, less blocky script. I'd check 'Completed Listings' / 'Worldwide' on eBay and Google Images to find comparisons.

    I have 2 Enigma MK111 10ft 8wt 3 piece rods.
    They are a copper colour with black reel seat.
    I believe the earlier ones were 2 piece.

    Jonathan Jones my friend designed the Enigma Mk1 Seatrout Special for Airflo with his name inscribed on the blank.There is one on ebay for a lot of money.
    Mk111 is better than the Mk11 according to JJ.
    I have landed salmon up to 17 pound off the Coquet,and a few off the Usk on them and are superb rods.
    I could ask him if he can remember the exact differences .

    Sewinfly. ......
