Great small reel. No wobble what so ever during the retrieve. Drag works GREAT. Would recommend this reel for anyone who loves like tackle fishing.

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.

Great reel choice
Purchased this reel having used one owned by a friend. Smooth casting and flawless operation. Will likely purchase a 2nd one.
