Mitchell 300 Reel is rated out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TxTurkeyHunter from The Legendary Mitchell 308 Spinning Reel I purchased the Mitchell 308 Spinning Reel after checking out a few reviews that were quite favorable. They actually convinced me to purchase one and I was not disappointed one bit. With the eight ball bearings, operation is "smooth as butter." This is something to cherish when you're working hard at bringing in a nice size Bass or Catfish. The Bale works when it's supposed to and that's awesome. I've had other Spinning Reels that I got rid of because of Bale issues. None of that stuff with the Mitchell 308. I'm quite satisfied with my purchase and recently purchased a Mitchell 300. I can't wait to try out that reel as well. Thanks Mitchell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joey G from A lifetime of fishing My Mitchell 300 is now 38 years old. I have used it for species of freshwater fish there is. Try gettin 50 bullhead with any other reel in one outing and that reel will not go with you the next time. It will be garbage. The Mitchell 300 horses any fish in especially bullhead, bullhead are the strongest toughest fish I know of. I used my reel in the ocean plenty of times too, it beats all, took on that salt water like it was the same as fresh water. I have horsed up 10 pound Walleyes from 40 feet down with this 300, walk in the park, never a problem. I just oiled it, don't even have to do that. Best reel ever, PERIOD!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mbelluso from Money Well Spent This reel is a classic. Easy to use, precision where it counts, pretty much bullet proof. Hard to put a value on how much fun my old friend and I have had together. I found another twin to my original while searching the Goodwill for vinyl albums. Overjoyed. Cleaned and lubed both-new again. Fish beware, I'm coming for ya.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dan72 from Long time fan of the Mtchell 300 and 308 I have been using Mitchell 300's and a 308 since I got one for high school graduation in 1964. I have caught fish from Muskie to blue gill on the 300 with ease. My two older 300's and 308 were made in France. They were made like a precision watch inside. No one makes a reel like the old Mitchells. I do have a newer Mitrchell 300 that I bought about 4 years ago. It is as good if not better than any of the other newer reels out there. I highly recommend the 300, 308 and the Avocet to anyone who has not trid a Mitchell. You will not be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Reignblood from Features on a budget I picked my first Mitchell 300 at Walmart for under $40 and immediately put it through the test! We took 22 bass and crappie on the first day. The reel cast smooth I can chuck a crappie jig 40 yards all day long and have the sun burn to prove it. If I had a cast counter I would say it was up around 400 with zero fail using 12lbs. Mono.

Rated 2 out of 5 by quickcarl from Disappointed ! I've had a number of Mitchell 300's in the distant past when they were made in France and loved them. Lately, I bought one of their new age ones at the Walmart for about $50. It looked good and seemed to work good until I spooled it with braided line. I kept getting knots in my line, and at first, I blamed it on the cheaper line, but when I put the same line on my Daiwa capricorn, it did not knot up at all ! Well, that told me something...you get what you pay for. I'll be putting my new Mitchell 300 in storage and will save it as a souvenier! It sure didnt work as well as the vintage ones which I had purchased many years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shaun from Best Spinning Reel on the market I bought this reel as a rod/reel combo from Sportsmans Warehouse. I have had it for over 3 months and every time I use this reel it fits my hand like a glove. It has smooth action, great gear ratio, and reliable parts. I have never had a reel like this and would purchase another one if given the option.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mike 21 from Old reel was so much better I have an old Mitchell 300 that I had for a long time that I like a lot but I can't say the same for the new reel. It is cheaper than the old one because you can't get extra spools and it is made out of plastic unlike the original ones. The new reel is ok but I would prefer if they just remake the old one.
