    The creator of the modern spinning reel brand known as Mitchell has been defunct since 1989/1990 and just last year the brand came back.For the life of me I couldn’t find one locally so I came here to get the 308 Pro model.Here’s some specs to throw at you on this model…

    Ball Bearings: 10
    Gear Ratio: 5.8:1
    Retrieve Per Turn: 30.5″
    Max Drag: 14lb.
    Weight: 8.9oz
    Mono Line Capacity: 6/185,8/130,10/110 (lb/yds)
    Braid Line Capacity: 6/275,8/190,10/160 (lb/yds)

    Basically the 308 and 300 are the same caliber you’ll just get more spool capacity with the 300 model.

    So why 4 stars as that question arouses…that’s a good question.
    When I first looked into the revival of the Mitchell brand I was taken to their UK site and learned the Jarden Corporation (owners of Penn,Shakespeare,and Spider Wire) was behind bringing back this brand…which is a good thing.Presentation wise everything was well machined and almost flawless(needed a dab of oil).One thing that made me look into the origin of manufacture was that the handle arm came right off as it felt loosely screwed on.No damage to the threads or machining damage of any kind it just wasn’t screwed on enough.Looking on the box there were those three words by the UPC ‘Made in China’.Two things to say regarding that,for starters Mitchell’s were made in France so I was hoping this advanced reel would have been made somewhere in Europe..gotta love German engineering.Secondly it’s always been the trend to buy a popular defunct brand and outsource it as a cheap product through Chinese manufacturing with negative outcomes in comparison.However you can’t really put these new models up against the originals because reels advance so this is like a rebirth of the Mitchell name as technology progressed.I wouldn’t necessarily say the Mitchell 308 Pro is the excuse not to buy a $100 American made reel but I’ll admit through imported manufacturing I certainly got my dollars worth…

    *Solid as hell with a double anodized aluminum spool and body

    *The polymeric casing actually feels solid and more like an acetal resin(delrin) and the bail halo is effective at keeping line from tangling.

    *Looks great and everything functions smoothly with slick drag and cast.Some might not know this but the 300 Series still has an anti reverse switch.

    German or American made I would have given this reel 5-stars but the initial impression from the moment I took it out of the box and checked it out…I suspected china made right away and was right.However it’s nice to see the 308 Pro back again possessing traits of the old Mitchell 300 Series and bringing features of the updated reels to carry on a legacy..hopefully for good this time.

    I love the build of this reel. It is built with heavy duty scratch resistant material. I’m in my 30s an have no doubt this reel will still be going when i’m dead. When I put this on my pole it felt like something was rubbing. That is why i give it 4 stars. After about a day of fishing rapala’s the rubbing feel went away and it feels and performs better than any reel I’ve owned. I think the rubbing feel was just tight tolerance on the components. I will definitely buy this reel again.
