Balzer Mitchell Reels (Balzer)

Exclusive importer and distributor of Mitchell for Germany.

Bass Pro Shops

Since the mid-1980s, Bass Pro Shops still has a long time standing relationship with Mitchell as a very large retailer of fishing equipment and other outdoor sporting goods. It was because of this relationship that Mitchell made the Mitchell G series reels and quite possibly the Mitchell Pro Series reels.

Big Game Mitchell Reels (Big Game)

The Big Game Mitchell Reels are known as the 1000 "trolling" series. The first three issues – 1040 (4/0), 1060 (6/0) and the 1090 (9/0) were offered in a wood display case. These were sold in both European markets and by Garcia starting in the late sixties. In 1977 Mitchell introduced the 1120 (12/0) that was only distributed in Europe. Mitchell also made another series of big game reels starting in the early 1980s simply called The President.


The 1000 series of Mitchell big game reels were not made to compete with Penn as some believe, but to compete with the Californian brand also made of anodized aluminum side plates. It is the much smaller Mitchell 600 series that was originally designed to compete with Penn. It was later on when Penn came out with their own series to compete against all metal reels!
