Mitchell 310X Spinning Reel

Smaller Than The 300X And The 308X

SPIRIT LAKE, IOWA – Following in the foot steps of the world’s best selling spinning reels, the original Mitchell 300 and 300X, the ultra-light version is now available as Mitchell introduces both the 310X and 310X Gold spinning reels.

 

The 310X still follows the lead of the 300X and 308X with the tradition styling of the original and the enhanced improvements allowed by today’s reel technology.  The sleek and modern lightweight graphite body design includes a five-bearing drive for smooth and reliable performance. The Model 310X is the world’s only ultra-light spinning reel with a worm gear oscillation that provides perfect line winding after each cast.

 

The 310X features Instant Anti-Reverse, front drag adjustment and two skirted spools with line keeper. The revolutionary patented cartridge spool system makes spool changing a snap. A simple twist of the spool removes it from the reel and a new spool can be added just as easily, no knobs to turn or buttons to push.

 

Both reels have a reversible handle with a gold finish on the 310X Gold.  For more information about the Mitchell 310X and 310X Gold reel or other Mitchell fishing tackle products, call Mitchell Angler Services or visit the Mitchell website

Mitchell® Armada Spinning Reel

Corrosion Resistant For Saltwater Action

SPIRIT LAKE, IOWA – Nothing is tougher on fishing tackle than saltwater. Take most freshwater reels to the ocean and consider them a trot-line weight after one use. The new Mitchell Armada spinning reel is built for tough saltwater elements and action but priced economically for the casual saltwater angler.

 

The Armada spinning reel is available in three sizes each with the patented Mitchell quick-change cartridge spool design allowing the angler to change line sizes with a simple twist of the spool. Also on each Armada is the patented line behind the spool prevention system which keeps the angler fishing instead of untangling.

 

Other Armada features include Instant Anti-Reverse, two skirted spools, reversible handle, front drag adjustment and durable bail for dependable line pickup and even winding.
