Well, seeing as how much I like my 5600, I figured why not buy another "classic" G? Well, seeing as the 5500 is the cheapest route to owning a Black Dawn 25th Anniversary model, it just made sense! You guys know the features and the only thing I don't like is that the CDT goes up to 1 hour but that's ok as I don't use them that much.

I chose this model over the GW-056 as the 5500 is most likely to hold it's value/appreciate with time vs. the 056. I also like the Gold LCD on the 5500!:p

However, I've read that replacement parts are hard to come by, is this true??
If this is the case, might it be prudent to not wear this model as much as I've been wearing my 5600? While I'm not a collector as some of you all may be, I do still hope for a long life from the 5500.


Any other 5500 fans out there, how many own this model?

:thanks:-!

I'm pretty excited too Kiwidj... This was the cheapest way to "get a piece" of history so to speak. Most all other 25ths are $50+ or more than this one but I can see that the 5500 wouldn't be as popular as the newer designs of the Muddy/Gulf/Froggie.

I love that model but wish I could find a regular display. The gold display makes me feel sick, literally, for some reason I don't get.
