ABU 5000 to go with an Emmrod Packer

Here is a classic old reel.  It's an ABU 5000 from the 70's .  I've owed it since it was new and just kept it up.  Great for topwater fishing since it's the old 3.5 to 1 ratio, strong but slow.  No ball bearings at all just bronze bushings and it casts like a dream.  The reel will be teamed with an Emmrod Packer and a seven coil tip. It's going to Lake of the Woods.
