Green Top Hunt Fish [greentophuntfish.com]has the Mitchell 308 Pro Series Spinning reel on sale for 50% off MSRP: $34.99. Store pickup in Virginia is free, otherwise shipping is $10 which at $45 is still significantly cheaper than basspro [basspro.com]and cabelas selling the reel for $70. I do not own the reel myself so i cannot comment on the quality, but people on BPS rate it 4.2 stars on 100+ reviews.

Quote from Ohsighrus :
Dunnno why anyone would spend $35 on a Mitchell when Daiwa and Penn own the market for a reason.
What other models do you like at $35? At slightly higher prices I prefer shimano but not sure what is out there that isn't total junk for the kids in this price range.

I have a 308x Gold with the interchangeable spools. Solid reel and I've even used it in saltwater (Hawaii and SoCal) though I wouldn't recommend it over the long run haha. Haven't used it in a long time so I should probably check it out.

Had several of the Garcia Mitchell reels growing up, they were made of metal and always worked well. Little bit heavy compared to today's carbon/plastic body and 10 bearing moels but they are true classic reels. The new Mitchell reels parent company is Pure Fishing that also owns Abu Garcia and Penn so these seem to fit in the lower end of the reels.

I have this reel. The grip on it came off after a week of use.

The Mitchell 308 and 300 have been around forever. They used to be very good quality, nearly indestructible, and very simple to maintain.

Mitchell's used to be made in France with a ton of metal parts. They were indestructible and a lot of fisherman (my dad!) still seek out the older versions at garage sales, ebay, etc. He's had ones that he's kept running since the early 70's. The new ones are still nice and definitely worth this price, just not of the same quality of the old ones.

Because mitchell=penn
Same company, same plant, different name on the box

If you think Penn spinning reels are good, this is too
Maybe I'm missing it. Where does it say same plant? Just because they have the same parent company, doesn't mean they're all made with the same materials or at the same plant.

I bought a Mitchell reel 5 years ago on sale for around $70. Love it. Great smooth action and has held up to a lot of use in my fishing in WA state and AK.

Mitchell has been around. I have Mitchell reels passed down to me from my grandfather circa 1960s
From what I remember, the 308 model has been around for ages.

Oh ok. So Fenwick and Berkley rods are the same too?

I guess the point here is to attract youngsters who have never heard of Mitchell, but why? They're just buying bottom barrel Walmart garbage anyway and are unlikely to be repeat buyers.
