Mitchell 908 – 1978-1986 = 117,205 Units
Mitchell 909 – 1979-1981 = 4,520 Units

 

The first version 908 series was made in France for Garcia distribution only starting in their 1978/79 season. The one shown with serial number H320211 was released just after the 900 and 906 series were released. All three of these reels were painted gray and the first Mitchell reels with skirted spools.


The 908 Ultra-Light is a high quality reel designed after the Mitchell 408 series at only 7.8 ounces with Planamatic gearing and a 5:1 gear ratio. This reel had many new features including the polished one piece solid aluminum spool, stainless steel bail wire, two bail springs and a manual bail release button.


The second version shown with serial number M032102 was made in France for Browning distribution. All mechanics of the two are the same but as you can see, there are several external aesthetic differences.
