Can anybody shed a light on this one?

Is it `justĀ“ a 300 or something more special?

Greetings

CaptainSlowFish,
I'm not an expert on the 300's. But it looks like a regular 300 with the wrong handle. I'm sure you'll get some good answers soon!

CaptainSlowFish,
Welcome to the Mitchell Reel Museum. :sSig_welcome4:

This is a perfect example of what has become of many of the Mitchell 300 reels offered on auctions today. They are not as original. :sCh_taz: It is a Mitchell 300 with the "wrong" handle. In this case I mean "wrong" in that it is not the original handle that came with this reel as Don said.
Kind Regards,
Bill :tup

Captainslowfish,

Welcome. I bought an identical reel just like that in March. The handle then went to a 440 that needed a handle. The 300 found a handle on the shelf and then went to the daughter. Total cost was what I would have paid for just the handle. Good eye on spotting what is wrong. :sCh_fisherman:

Greatlaker,

Cannot say I recall anything else wrong...More than likely the anti-reverse dog was wrong for the 300 as well. I was happier saving a few bucks on a 440 handle I needed. :sFun_bananachaplin:
