For Fred & the interest to other members, I had to take the 2 screws out,and end for end the connecting block, to convert the reel from left hand winde to right hand, not place it on the other side of the slide, all working good now, also had to wash the bearing out, relube & real smooth, thanks again Fred, cheers Don, Now start on the Mitchells, mostly 489`s.

What is the difference between 500 and 550N?

There are several differences.  You can't switch a 550N from right hand to left hand retrieve, but you can on a 550.  Also the anti-reverse mechanisms are different.  The spools won't interchange and the ratchet wheel on a 550N is plastic, while the  550 ratchet wheel is metal.  The bail setups are completely different but I believe they both share the same bail  spring.  I have a couple of both reels and the 550N feels more balanced, is quieter and smoother, but the 550 is a stronger, more well built reel in my opinion.

my 2 cents worth. I have a few of these older Quicks.  I had a 550N but traded it off.  If I remember correctly, It seems to me the  550"N" was narrower than the plain 550. Is that the case with all the "N" series reels ? Perhaps that is what the N stands for - but I do not know this for sure.

Don't criticize our kids. We too were once "young n' dumb".... Fortunately - and sadly - neither condition is permanent.
