Hello I just recently purchased an old reel that looks a lot like the Mitchell 300 but mine has the name Fisco 800 on the side where the Mitchell logo usually is! Can anyone help me in finding out what this reel is and maybe a ballpark figure on the worth? It's brand new in the box with extra spool and carrying bag!
Thanks for any info

Greetings tawill69,
Welcome to the Mitchell Reel Museum.

Because the Mitchell 300s were the number 1 selling reel, back in the day, there were numerous attempts to copy the look and features of the 300.
You might visit the "Franken-reel" section on the page and see other attempts, like yours.
Values for these are tough to get unless you can find one that was recently sold on eBay, in their completed sales list.

Regards,
Ted Lanham
