This listing is for the Shimano 5000 FA reel, shown in the photos. I bought this reel new several years ago, and only used it in some kingfish tournaments for 2 seasons, and to catch bait in some other tournaments. Some of the paint flaked off, but that appears to be an error in the production, where the paint did not adhere perfectly in those areas.
Overall, it looks great and is in great working condition. It has not been used much at all, and has always been well taken care of, and kept in a clean, climate-controlled home.
I've had several of these Shimano Stella FA reels, and they are excellent. I was planning on keeping a few, but I've decided to sell the last 3 that I have, which include this one, another 5000 FA, and an 8000 FA, also currently listed. Please let me know if you have any questions. The item "Shimano Stella 5000 FA" is in sale since Sunday, April 23, 2017.
