The Mitchell 300 Pro spinning reel follows in the vaulted history of Mitchell quality, consistency, and innovation, while adding a handful of modern innovations to improve fishing performance even more. The innovative composite Bail Halo completely surrounds the rotor, giving the bail-support arm a fully ringed shape instead of the typical crescent shape seen on nearly every other spinning reel. and the advanced polymeric body is stronger and lighter than aluminum—but aluminum is still used where it's critical, though, in the handle and the double-anodized spool. The carbon fiber drag puts even pressure on fighting fish, and the EVA handle knob is lightweight and comfortable.

  • 10 bearing system with instant anti-reverse
  • Bail Halo for ease of casting
  • Advanced polymeric body
  • Machined aluminum handle
  • Machined double anodized aluminum spool
  • Carbon-fiber drag
  • EVA knob

Great value for the money. In the good old days (really old), French built Mitchell products were at the top of the stack as far as spinning reels were concerned. Then they were later manufactured somewhere else, and were made differently, but without much in the way of design evolution. They were pretty awful reels for a while. Later, the quality started to improve, and design changes got more innovative. I felt that by 2005, the 300 series was the best that it had been in a very long time, but still wasn't quite on par with other brands in the same price range. That seems to have all changed with the 300 Pro series. I bought a 308, and fished with it a couple of times. The reel is light and balanced feeling on the rod, and very smooth in operation. It has a nice tight feel, as in no "slop", resistance or binding felt through the handle on retrieve. I used P-Line Halo 8# on it, and found that the line stayed manageable with no twisting, loops, or tangles all through day's casting and retrieving. The drag is quite smooth, and there's plenty of it, if needed. The bail operates without too much resistance. The reel body design has a blend between the traditional and the new, that makes it attractive looking without being too "blingy". It's as good as any other reel in it's price range, and might be better than some costing more money. September 30, 2014
solid reel for the price It's been decades since my last purchase of a Mitchell 300. This is a good return to an old friend with a 2014 updated personality. Excellent for the price...good drag. September 23, 2014
Great reel choice Purchased this reel having used one owned by a friend. Smooth casting and flawless operation. Will likely purchase a 2nd one. September 11, 2014
Nice Buy for Price I bought this reel a few months ago, overall it has served its purpose well. Using it with 12lb braid, the only issue i have is with the drag, occasionally, as it seems to slip. But other than that it is a great product for the price, very smooth and sets quickly. May 29, 2014

Just retired my 40yr old 300. Is the 300pro going to last as long? I have a young son and I'd like to give him something that will last a while.

A: 
My 50 year old Mitchell was stolen but it made a lasting impression on me, and that was that European reels are hard to beat. No reason to believe the new 300s will be any different than its predecessor.

A: 
No, this reel is not a great long term reel compared to say the 300, but it would be a great reel for your son. if you are really into fishing I recommend the Shimano Stradic spinning reel.
