** Trotting enthusiasts should note that, in common with the Prince range, the bail arm rotates in the opposite direction to most other vintage Mitchell reels (300/301, 410/411, 440/441 etc) thereby bringing the line to the inside of your forefinger for better line control when trotting, and much better for instant striking so you'll miss fewer bites!
