Bought 5 x 3rd versions in a lot last week
One of them has cross-wind gears.

It doesn't have a serial number unfortunately and the handle
is a regular alu/black. All the other features are typical for the early 3rd version.

Wallace, this could be the one you are looking for to compare to your CW on page 67 of your book ?

About the handle knob on that one I mailed you some time ago but I suppose you did not have time to reply at the time, I understand.
It was the knob of another French made reel b.t.w.

Regards,
Jean-Paul

Hey JP, Sorry for all the delays my friend, they are not intentional I assure you. Getting back to my old self, I'm trying to catch up now ;)

All of the cross wind 3rd version Mitchell reels that were factory originals had "A" prefix serial numbers and of course, the red handle knob. I've seen many like your that have been upgraded.

I'm embarrassed to say, I don't remember the reel you sent me. Can you describe it in detail, please kind sir...

All the best,
Wallace

So, basically it's like the CW in your book on page 67, or am I missing something here ?

The handle knob of the same reel (p 67) I will have to lookup again (I did not save the message I send you). I only remember is belongs to a another brand (French but not Michell) and an early version of it. Could be SAP but I'll check, it will take me some time to find it, it's somewhere in a hugh pile of documentation I have gathered over the years (I really should start organising that...).
