i've got a 5500 c3, only a bit of difference. it should be fine for spinning, and a good price as well :)

best not to fill it right up with line though,150 yards is plenty-that way it is easier to control and wont blow up as much

unless it is a right dog and completely knackered £15 is a bargain for an abu-i use mine for bass/light tackle work and love it

I use my 5000 for light shore work and recently went to do a bit of spinning but my small fixed spool broke so I been using it for spinning as well and found it to be well up to the job.

if your getting birds nests, try screwing in the brake, untill the spool goes quite tight. then you can get used to it better, and gradually ease the brake as you get more confident :)
