Mitchell 300 (Made in Taiwan circa 2000)

One of the last traditional style Mitchells this Taiwan-made 300 has a multi-part bail with line roller, silent anti-reverse and folding handle with flat paddle knob. All parts are interchangeable with the last French-made version. Some cosmetic wear but mechanically perfect, a smooth & silent runner.

This 3rd version specification included a spring loaded folding handle with contoured knob, half bail arm (automatic closure) with hardened line guide, optional anti-reverse operated with its "boomerang" shaped on/off switch, no serial number (correct) but lettter ''V'' stamped on foot and simply Mitchell engraved on side plate.

Garcia Mitchell 300 (Made in France circa 1961)

Early classic French made Mitchell 300. One of the first to be fitted with the new angled screw-lock folding handle (previously only fitted to the 350) and Oilite drive-shaft bearing while retaining the best features (in my humble opinion) of the 1950s reels, ie contoured handle knob, audible click check, one-piece bail, tungsten carbide line guide and quick-release spool. Slight paint loss mainly from rims but perfect working order and complete with original spare spool in screw top spool tub with no cracks! Serviced and ready to use...

Mitchell 300A (Made in France circa 1989)

One of the last French made Mitchells and the last to have the much loved traditional audible anti-reverse. Other specification includes the multi-piece bail with hardened line roller, angled folding handle with classic contoured knob, 4.2:1 gear ratio and improved non-snag drag knob. Excellent condition with an exceptionally smooth action. Complete with original spare spool, plus a Match spool. Serviced and ready to use...

Garcia Mitchell 301 (Made in France circa 1967)

Right-hand-wind version of the classic French made Mitchell 300 with angled screw-lock folding handle and contoured knob, one-piece bail with tungsten carbide line guide. Slight deterioration to paintwork consistent with age & fair use but mechanically perfect. A very smooth runner in perfect working order and complete with original shallow spare spool. Fully serviced and ready to use...

GBP 42.00 (Item reference SRL427)  




Mitchell 308 PRINCE (circa 1964)

Rare early Mitchell 308 Prince serial number 270078. The smallest French made Mitchell designed for light freshwater fishing. Featuring ball-bearing action, "Planamatic" wind, 4.5:1 gear ratio, one-piece bail with hardened line guide, push-button spool and spring loaded folding handle with contoured knob. Trotting enthusiasts should note that the bail rotates in the opposite direction to most other vintage Mitchells, thereby bringing the line to the inside of your forefinger when trotting - much better! Slight paint loss from rims and underside of body. Very good condition and mechanically perfect. Collectable & highly useable. Complete with original spare spool. Fully serviced and ready to use...

Some paint loss consistent with fair use.
