Rated 4 out of 5 New reel
I recently bought a Mitchell 300XGe. Overall the reel is a great purchase. The reel is super smooth but does offer a slight scrubbing sound. This scrubbing does not effect the performance of the reel at all. The steel casts very well and does not tangle an excessive amount, of course if you overfill the spool it will tangle with the best of them. I am quite happy with this reel, and BassProShops is always great to deal with. So far I have not found any disadvantages due to the reel.

the first time I used the reel it became quite loud during retrieve. I returned it and had to pay for the shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RandyG Excellent spinning reel
I have owned many reels, both bait casting and spinning, and this one, the Mitchell 300XGe ranks right at the top. Very user friendly, dependable, and well built. The interchangeable handle is another good feature. The reel is also an excellent value. Try one, you will not be disappointed!

The Mitchel 300 Xge is left or right handed. The handle can be placed on either side! I would however, go for an other brand, like Diawa, Shimano. Because the quality of the Mitchel reels has gone down dramatically in the past few years. I have a new Mitchel 308 Xe, and I used twice and the bearing are shot in it, it makes the whirring sound when you reel it in. I have older models that are ten years old that work just as new. I also have a 1973, made in France model that works better than all my other Mitchels. It's up to you, but I would buy an other brand.
