Any information and opinions on this reel series would be appreciated. All I've been able to locate is the schematic and that the reel was made in the 1990s. Thank.

Komta,
When you posted this question, I thought that it was a bit out of the realm of most of the mates. Like me, most of the mates are more knowledgeable of the older, pre 80's, Mitchell reels, but there may be one of them that can help you with the Excellence models.
Time will tell.

Regards,
Ted Lanham

Thank you for responding. I realized this was outside of the scope of this forum but I can't find any information whatsoever on these reels; the quality, when they were made, who made them, and especially the related history/evolution from the traditional Mitchell reels.

Enclosed photos from the Mitchell 1993 catalog.
I hope this will help you.

Hello,
In his day it was a very good reel with which I fished pike perch. Since I changed equipment, first of Mitchell "Tecna 60" then by "Predator 600" disarmable reels that still serve me today.
Obviously this is no longer the quality of the old Mitchell, fishing is not the same, pollution has done its work
