N Suffix on Mitchell 302N Reels (N Suffix)

The N Suffix on Mitchell 302N Reels started when Mitchell stopped making the Mitchell 302 series reels in 1974. In 1968 they had started making the Mitchell 386 series saltwater reel that were not so popular. In 1975 they renamed the 386 series to the 302N series!?


We can only speculate that due to good sales volumes of the Mitchell 402, the high speed version of the 302, and the low sales volumes for the Mitchell 386 series, this was a necessary step. Just remember; the Mitchell 302N is just a Mitchell 386 and nothing special.
