HOT NEW Mitchell 300 Pro
Maurice Jacquemin, a Carpano & Pons engineer, was the inventor of the Mitchell® spinning reel as we know it today. His goal was to produce a reel which was not only a container to hold line, but also a tool which would cast the lure at a great distance with precision and recover the line without tangling. In 1948, and after two years of development, the revolutionary Mitchell® 300 was born.
By 1970 Mitchell was turning out 12,000 model 300 spinning reels per day. Throughout the ‘70’s and early ‘80’s Mitchell 300’s were THE spinning reel to have. They weren’t pretty, but they were reliable, simple to use and priced right.
Of course these days, the spinning reel market is flooded with offerings from Abu Garcia, Shimano and many others. Where does this leave the folks at Mitchell? Well they are still around and they are still turning out 300s but they are not the 300s our fathers and grandfathers relied on…
All New For 2013 The Mitchell 300 Pro
Mitchell 300 Pro Series Spinning Reels merges the tradition of the old with the materials, features, and design on today, giving the angler a more comfortable, dependable spinning reel. Mitchell has taken its popular 300 series and elevated it to an all-new performance level with the 300Pro.
The Mitchell 300 Pro spinning reel is a high performance 10 bearing reel with a 5.8:1 gear ratio. The reel is capable of holding up to 210 yards of 10 pound mono or 210 yards of 14 braid.
With this gear ratio the reel picks up 33 inches of line with every turn of the handle. The reel comes standard with a hybrid carbon fiber drag that is capable of handling large hard running fish without overheating. The all aluminum spool, double anodized aluminum handle and EVA non-slip grip should give the angler many long years of trouble free performance.
As a result of our close relationship with the folks at Mitchell, the Fish Sniffer has acquired a sample Mitchell 300 Pro for field testing and review.
Toss your name in the hat. You might be the lucky Fish Sniffer supporter chosen to field test what many are already calling the “hottest spinning reel for 2013”.
