    Nice find. I still have my old Zebco rod but don't know what went with the old reel.

    Great find. I much prefer the old Mitchell-Garcia reels myself. But will agree that reels from days gone by (in my opinion anyway), are much better. I now have two Mitchell 300's, a mitchell 308 and a mitchell 308A. The 300's are a bit larger than the 308's but love them just the same.

    That reel looks to have been lightly used and cared for. Great find and time to get another oldster back in service!

    Good find Doug. I had a Lews speed spin from their early production that I liked a lot, til I wore the gears out of it. I look for the old reels down here but all I find are worn out parts reels or eaten up from the salt water.
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.
