    Anyone know what the difference between a 5500 KC-3 and a 5500 CL-3? Sure do look the same to me.

    Well that settles it for me. If no one in the BOC knows, it ain't worth knowing. Think I'll just get another Penn.

    I have a 5500 C3 , silver color sides, the box says new and improved and the first three improvements start with the letter C , Carbon matrix drag, Chemical nickel coated levelwind , Crowned brass gears :crazy: but i don't know , maybe something like that .

    If I am not mistaken the 5500 KC-3 is built for Kmart and a 5500 CL-3 is built for Cabelas? The difference is on the out side of the reel the inside is the same.
