Hi All,

The fun continues!

Make your own Franken reel, Tah Dah!

First reel is my LEMZ, made in 1974

The second is a 324, purchased in 1977, at a discount store.

The third reel Is a 206S, purchased to go with a rod I got during a close out sale.

All parts interchange. The LEMZ bail trip broke. the 324 part fit .
Leningrad ElectroMechanical Zavod (factory) made all the sport fishing for the Soviet Union.

More on the nest post

Wow,Man! the Russian side plate fits the 206S.

When Mitchell made a change, the Soviets copied it.

Check out that auction site. Most Soviet fishing reels are a direct copy.

Imagine reverse engineering a VOLVO bus! They copied each part, but couldn't make it run. Could not get the par tolertences right. Try telling that to your Boss!

Ferd72,
That's interesting! I've seen quite a few Mitchell 300 copies, but I don't recall any so close that they had interchangeable parts.
I guess, nuclear secrets weren't the only things they borrowed from the West. :sFun_shocked:

Regards,
Ted Lanham
