This is just a great reel. Sure, you can get something better for $100, but for less than that, this reel is very hard to beat, especially with its durability. I fish on a budget, and purchased this reel several years ago in the combo. Unfortunately, I accidentally broke the rod, therefore I cannot say much about it. I now have it on an ugly stik and use it very frequently. I have put it to the test time and time again and this reel never fails me. I beat it up, toss it around, and leave it out in the weather. I have never had to do a bit of repair or maintenance, and it still works like it's brand new. I honestly could not think of a single thing bad about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CDWilliams05 You can't go wrong with this one
Pair it with an ugly stick, and you've got a grab and go combo that can't be beat. Smooth operation, clean looks. When a lot of other manufacturers keep getting flashier and flashier, to where they are more show pieces than something you want to fish with. Mitchell keeps their stuff looking nice, but it doesn't have a lot of "BLING." to it. Solid performer though, with a subtle clean look.
I'll definitely be buying mitchell's from here on out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JBL816 Great Reel!
I have the 300XE on a 7' Berkley Amp rod with 10lb fluorocarbon line, and this thing just slays bass! The 8 ball bearings makes this reel smooth with a V. I never used Mitchell before I bought this reel, but I assure you, I will use Mitchell for the rest of my life!
