All old Mitchells are rubbish, I'll give you 50p/ton...maybe £1.00/ton for 302/402s B)

Eating wild caught fish is good for my health, reduces food miles and keeps me fit trying to catch them........it's my choice to do it, not yours to stop me!

Worms,

 

You're just jealous because the "frogs" made the good ones. Mitchell reels do both, catch fish are are collectors treasures.

 

The did rely heavily of the name for a number of years after the 300 - didn't they?

I like an old Mitchell, particualrly the diminutive 408, 409, and CAP 308 - they wind in the correct direction. I like a 300, and a 410 but don't use fixed spool often, and find the bale going round the 'wrong' way quite disconcerting. Bomb proof though.

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

None of this "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" crap it just means i have at least two enemies!

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

Do you have a source for the carbon drag washers, Worms?

Yep, I get them from these guys. I have had to 'tune' a few by boring out internal diameters but all of my 300s, 410s and my 302 are now fully equipped with carbon drags. Very powerful and very smooth!

 

Look under carbontex drag washers!
