    I know its an abu, it's green, and has bearings that is all I know. Can anybody
    possibly tell me a model or year anything would be helpful.

    Thanks

    Could be. The 5000D is a direct drive, no drag, you had the let pressure off the handle to let the fish take line. We used our in timber fishing with blood bait, when one hit it you could get them up out of the logs.

    It's hard to tell in the pic if the drag turn handle is there as it is black like the handle.

    However after looking at the pic closer it might not have a drag handle.

    your probably right Jim:smile2:

    I went an lightend up the pic and it sure looks like it has the star drag handle

    It does not look like the 5000ds I have. My 5000ds do not have the
    plastic cover over the levelwind and the green is the wrong shade.
    Most Abus give the model number on the side plate. The 5000d is
    direct drive. That reel has star drag.

    Man that site brings back memory's. The 5500d is what I was tought with to cast bait casters from my father. I think he still has it tucked away somewhere, I'll have to see if he does and maybe bring it back into action.
