I was given a Mitchell 300 that has the Made in Taiwan stamped on it.
Is this a Mitchell or just a knock off made to cash in on the name?

It has Mitchel 300 on the body and a single red strip around the bell housing.

I do have a 300 from the looks of the gallery it is a version 7, bought for my grandfather and handed down to me.
Love that reel, it has brought in some of my biggest Northern pike I have ever caught. Image

Hi, and welcome to our group!  What you have is a Mitchell 300 which was assembled in Taiwan.  The French manufacturing plants closed in around 1990 and from then forward all Mitchell reels were manufactured in the Pacific Rim Countries.  They are still good reels, and coming from your Grandfather has special meaning.  Fish it well!

Best regards,

Wayne
