    I believe the "N" stands for narrow spool. "LD" stands for lever drag. If you look at the line capacity of that reel as compared to the same model with just "LD" there is a big difference.

    Beetle is right. It is a "Lever Drag" instead of the star drag. It's the same gears and ratio as the other 7000 models, but only has the spool capacity of a 6000.

    I started out learning with the newer which seem to be the larger Abu Garcia reels. and working down.I love old machinery and tools of all types.Are the reel changes through the years mainly to improve or is it for cost such as ease of machining,assembly,product cost etc.?Thanks.I love you Brothers and Sisters.peewee.

    Seems to be a little bit of both Pee Wee. The newer reels seem to be a little smoother or quieter, but my older ones seem to feel a little more solid. I've been fishing with a new 5600C4magtrax and an old 5000C the last few days. The fish with the older reel seem to come in and up the wall alot easier with the old reel than with the newer one.
