    Whatis the diference between the ABU 5000 and the ABU 6000. Walmart has both. The 5000 is 49.95 the 6000 is 59.95. Whats the diference besides price,thats just the reels. They do have a combo of 6000 and a 7 ft rod for 69.95. just curious.

    5000 doesnt have bait alarm (clicker)
    and 6000 holds a bit more line.
    both are good reels and are probably equal in drag strength
    and all but the bait alarm is basically the feature most desireable
    between the two .
    i like my sons 5000 and we both have 4600's i like those as well
    just dont have clickers but they are tough reels.

    If you are gonna buy one get the 6000, it holds more line than the 5000, and the 6000 also has a bait clicker..I have caught some nice fish on a 6000.
