PUM Mitchell Pick Up Manual Reel (PUM)

PUM is the most common term for the Mitchell Pick Up Manual (a French term) which started its popularity in Europe. These were fixed Roller Line Guide as opposed to the Full Bail system. Other abbreviations were MP for Manual Pickup and PM for Pickup Manual.


Some Mitchell reel PUMs were original factory made such as the early model Mitchell 302 however, this same reel had a optional PUM part that could be ordered. This makes it very difficult to determine authenticity. Other Mitchell reels like the Mitchell 498 only came with a PUM.
