While looking at the reel it is actually a Mitchell 303 copy. The handle is a right hand crank making it a left hand reel. First left hand Mitchell copy I have ever seen. With a PUM to boot. Nice catch.........

There is also a version with a white side.
I did not buy these, just noticed them on some Argentina auction website (linked to from Ebay). I don't know how the prices work, they are extremely high for everything, could have to do with inflation in Argentina ??

You are correct, I had not even noticed that, thanks for pointing it out.
:tup The other version is also right hand crank, don't know if they made a 302 copy as well.

Judging from the wear on both reels it looks like they were well used. They seem to have held up over time considering the waters where they were used. Thanks.......

J.Piqueras made some other interesting spinning reels that were not look-a-likes. I do not yet know the type names of these. There is something about types X1, X2 and X7 (next to the X4 above) but I do not know what is what... pics below of some of these. JPC
