Kirk Odo Fishing Reels (Kirk Odo)

The Odo Manufacturing Plant in France was (believed to be) a subcontractor for Mitchell at a time when plant production capacities were limited and sales began to peak in the fifties. When “jilted” by C&P they decided to do things their own way and started making their own reel called Kirk Odo Fishing Reels. With only 20,000 units made; Impecco picked up the export/import and Garcia began marketing of this reel but had the name changed to Kroyden. The reasons behind the names Kirk-Odo and then Kroyden can only be speculative. Though this reel was never part of "Mitchell" it is part of Mitchell's history.
