I still have my mitchell 300 that my mom gave me for my 13th birthday ( a very long time ago). Made in France, no plastic.  I lived in Shenorock, NY then and i went down to the lake after the party and caught a good sized largemouh. I brought it home and my grandmother cooked it for us. The reel is priceless to me since my mom passed 2 months later.

I have caught a ton of fish with that reel and often think back to how much that reel means to me.

Love this story

I'm looking for a bait runner as I fish mostly live/dead bait and carp. They are a little pricey unless you go foriegn/no-name. Not sure about those. A little hesitant, lol.

The okuma avenger a and b are both decent reels for the price, but you would be much happier with a Shimano baitrunner oc. Little spendy, but well worth it imo.
