Anyone know if they are still made? I can find the larger one but not the 5600. I was fishing Texoma Friday with a large gizzard shad and did not realize that I had bumped the handle and locked the spool. A large striper hit and we heard a snap and saw the rod and holder going over in a hurry. Broke the base off the rod holder. I would have liked to see that fish. I cannot find the 5600 with bait clicker any where. Cabelas has the C3s but I prefer the thumb bar. Found on Ebay but lost the bid. Model number of the one I lost is 5600CA

Hey Stump, check on Ebay. There's several on there. I'll be more than happy to look for you if you want.

I just lost an auction on one. I looked yesterday and saw several 5600s but non with clickers. I will look again today. Still waiting a response from Garcia. If I used it solely with bait I would just buy the C3 but I like the thumbar for casting.

They are easy to add. The parts can be had for very little money, I think I paid like $8.00 and did three reels. You have to cut a small groove in the end cover and install the parts. Super easy.

I have seen the you tube videos and would try this if I had a reel to convert. Since I need to buy a replacement I prefer to buy with the clicker. I found a 5600 D5 on Ebay that looks like it has the clicker. I emailed the seller and waiting for a reply. Not sure why I did not post this in the Rod & Reel section.

Garcia finally replied and they confirmed that the 5600 is no longer available with a bait alarm (that is their lingo). They offered to repair mine. I said if you can catch it. There is one big striper dragging it around in Lake Texoma.

how did you cut groove? I am going to order kit. I think Garcia has made a mistake by discontinuing the smaller reels with the clicker. Seem like demand is still there.

Found it finally. They call it a "line out alarm". For anyone looking for a reel with the alarm the Cabelas on line catalog is incorrect. The 5500 does NOT come with a bait clicker even though it is listed as an option.

CS supervisor called day after I returned 5500C3. He said to just keep reel and gave me immediate refund. I said too late it is in the mail. He offered a $100 gift card. I said no I want the reel. He said no problem I will next day it. Meanwhile Ebay came through with a beautiful 5500C4 with clicker for $100 to my door. I will say Cabelas has great CS. After losing my best rod and reel along with rod holder things turned out ok even if I cost me $100. Reel is better than one I lost which was at least 20 years old. Prettier than black too. Still mad I did not not get to see fish.
