    Does anyone know anything about this reel. A friend of mine bought it at an auction. He brought it over for me to look at today,but I had never seen one like it before. Any information on this reel would be greatly appreciated. The reel looks like it might be pretty old,but then as I said before I had never seen one like it,and know absolutely nothing about it.

    I believe they were made in the 80's. I don't know what is different about them from the other 5000s, I've not had one in my hands to take apart and see. I see them on ebay now and then along with the 5000CA models. It seems that the CA and the AL kinda bring a little higher price, but I don't know why. I've been curious also as to what the difference is. I hope someone lets us both knob, lol.
