This is currently the highest serial number I've personally seen for 5000C. The left plate is Simon Shimomura's. This is probably the only way I'm to own this mint magnificient signpost reel among reels! Once done, you can pour Acetone in a coffee cup and soak these parts. We over pack all items with packing material to ensure. Pictured in progression with earliest first, I have found four side plate versions known to exist for the 2000 model. The 90mm chrome handles that were assembled to the brown 5500 in mid-1976 and on, would not fit inside any case. And a working clutch which dis-engages immediately on first crank.

The confusion seems to be if you have a 5001C with mushroom style takedown screws, it must be the first version. The combination of parts I list by number should be assembled to the reel. Wait for invoice for combined purchase before paying. Winning bidder pays shipping fees by priority mail.

One aspect to consider is the design of specific parts. If you have a 4-screw 5000C De Luxe please contact me so I can continue my research on them. Lovely chrome sits well against the black side plates and black single counter balance handle, smooth clutch and tough gearing allow you to play your catch, whilst the stainless bearings allow for some smooth casting. We further this commitment by taking very detailed and clear photographs that allow you to preview what you are getting. Reel appears to be unused but does have scuff marks from being moved around on it as pictured and the case is in poor condition. I always combine postage wherever possible.

I do not know the history behind this decision but I suspect it had to do with cost.

Nice pair of sideplates for an Abu 6000 reel. Oddly enough, I've seen several 6000's with 0507 01 May '67 and 0607 01 June '67 but neither change had taken place yet. The Final Chapter book by Simon Shimomura has a segment that shows all models up to 7000 with the majority of their version numbers. I never really did anything with the reel other than open it up and clean it, oil it and make sure everything works good, then i put it back in the box. Adjustment of the knurled aluminum knob sets the desired tension of drag washer pressure. At least I can not see any indication it has been used. Should a return be authorized.

This reel is identical in every way to the one I had been watching. For many it will always be the ultimate reel. Because of this, collectors can not be certain the frame is original on early 6000 models before lot numbers. Pictured is my 5001C with mushroom style take down knobs. Although we can not tell by the picture if this model is a 4-screw or 3-screw, the next set of pictures leaves no doubt to the existence of such a reel.
