Mitchell 489 – 1969-1986 = 53,911 Units

 

The first version Mitchell 488 series was introduced in 1968 as a new line of Salt Water reels along with the sister Mitchell 498 with the only difference between the two being the head, the spool and the pick-up. The 498 was always a PUM or Manual Pick-Up whereas the 488 was always a full bail. The 488 reels were painted Midnight Blue as were other Mitchell “400” series reels of the time such as the 400, 402, 406, 408, 410 and 498. The 488/489 color changed to Sky Blue circa 1978 and then painted black circa 1985.

 

We are missing the Midnight Blue 2nd release, the Garcia Mitchel and Mitchell painted Sky Blue, the Mitchell painted Black with White lettering and the same with Gold Lettering.
