MITCHELL Introduces new Mitchell 300X
SPIRIT LAKE, IOWA - Over 50 years ago, a young French watchmaker named Maurice Jacquemin created what would become the most popular spinning reel ever made, the Mitchell 300. It changed the face of fishing forever. That breakthrough ushered in a new era of light-tackle angling and an easier way to fish. Everyone could do it. Thousands of people discovered the pure fun of fishing. Today, Mitchell it still at it. Dedicated to a proud heritage of innovation Mitchell introduces a revolutionary new spinning reel - the Mitchell 300X.
Loyal Mitchell 300 users, and with over 25 million reels sold there are a lot of loyal fans, will see the resemblance and appreciate the advances offered in the new 300X. The sleek and modern lightweight graphite body design includes a five-bearing drive for the smoothest and most reliable performance and a worm gear oscillation that provides perfect line winding after each cast. The "PosiClick" bail wire lets the angler know when the bail is in position for casting.
The 6.0:1 high-speed gear ratio is suited for high speed retrieves and the instant anti-reverse allows for solid no-nonsense hook sets. The adjustable front drag on the 300X lets the angler alter the tension on the spool to match the fight of the fish. The durable aluminum handle can be changed to either right or left hand configurations.
The aluminum spool with line keeper is skirted, no more line tangles on the main shaft. Spool changing takes just seconds thanks to the revolutionary new patented cartridge spool system. With a simple twist of the spool it can be removed from the reel and a new spool added just as easily, no knobs to turn or buttons to push. A spare graphite spool is packaged with each reel.
The new Mitchell 300X weighs 11.6 ounces and can be loaded with 240 yards of 8-pound test monofilament line. The suggested retail price is $44.95.
Match the Mitchell 300X to that favorite high quality Fenwick or Berkley spinning rod to complete the ensemble.
