I picked up an ABU Garcia 5000C today for $10. It is in very good shape.

Does anyone still use such tackle?

I could never afford it when I was a kid.

I am going to pair it with an Eagle Claw 5'3" Blue Diamond.

I don't see anyone using them for Bass fishing

Catfish and striper/Hybrid guys like them

Give a man a fish, feed him for a day.

Teach a man to fish, he will sit in a boat all day and drink beer.

I found it at a community garage sale.

It needed cleaning but the gears looked like new.

I had trouble getting the washers in the stem back in the right order. They fell out as I was taking it apart.

There seem to be steel and bronze washers.

Any help will be appreciated.

I tried several sites but cannot get my model. I guess the 5000C has been around a while. Maybe with thumb bars, and so forth.

I have one of the early models with the small pearl handles.

The 5000c is the same as the 5000 , they use a brass bushing on the spool of the 5000, The 5000c has ball bearings on the spool.
