Mitchell CAP 304  (Made in France circa 1956)

Early French made full-bail successor to the claw-bail C.A.P. of the 1940s with traditional audible anti-reverse and contoured handle knob. Other specification includes one piece bail arm with hardened line guide. Also, because the anti-reverse mechanism had seized up, I upgraded it with an entire side plate including the anti-reverse mechanism, main drive gear and folding handle from a 314 ''Super CAP''. Some paint loss from rear of body (see photos) but good working order and hardly any mechanical wear. Complete with 2 near-mint condition shallow spools and a spare bail return spring (not shown). A very practical trotting reel** Serviced and ready to use...

GBP 28.00 (Item reference SRL483)
Important: For delivery to non-UK destinations please see international shipping then contact me before ordering.


** 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!



Recent addition
Mitchell 306X (Made in Japan circa 2005)

An extremely well engineered and now very rare modern version of the much loved Mitchell 306/307/406/407 "Intermediate" reels but totally different and much improved design! ...Well balanced, ambidextrous, instant silent anti-reverse, line clip, 5 ball bearing, skirted large capacity polished alloy deep spool with shallow graphite spare spool and an ultra-smooth action. The only similarity to the old French made 306 is the torpedo handle knob, which many anglers don't like, including its previous owner (an engineer) who replaced it with an extremely well made cone-shaped tapered one. However, to keep the reel original I have removed the tapered knob and re-fitted the original torpedo knob, but will of course include the tapered one with the reel when it sells. (See tapered knob with spare spool and leaflet in 4th photo).

Mint condition with makers' leaflets and home-made drawstring cloth pouch. An extremely smooth and silent runner with no signs of use. Suitable for fresh or saltwater. A superb replacement for the traditional French made 306 etc. Any questions please 'phone me.
