I picked this up the other day. I am just not sure which model it is. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 
TIA 

Mike

Look on the handle side plate.

The model should be printed there.

Nope. The writing was almost completely gone.

It is in great shape. I thought maybe 5600 but wasn’t sure. Well worth the $50 I paid for it. At least to me it is.

Well it's like a $150 reel, looks good, does it spin free? Does the drag work and smoothly? Does it reel in smoothly under tension? If so you stole it.

You can take that number off the bottom of the foot - it looks like 140015 08 and do a web search for abu Garcia serial numbers and decode that number… I forgot the way it decodes but you’ll figure out the model and the revision and year it’s made. Btw the ‘made in Sweden’ has some value in it as nowadays they are made in china or assembled in Sweden or whatever. It’s a nice lookin reel.

Spins like a top and the drag is smooth. Reels fine under tension. Sweet little reel.
