Hi Mates,

Just returned from my annual hunting vacation at my cabin in Maine - with no connectivity or electricity - so catching up. While I was away, I received a white letter label Mitchell 320 which I purchased from a gentleman in France. My question is how many different labels came on the Mitchell 320? I have nine different ones which I have provided photos of below.

These are the Page, Milbro and Blackfish B10.

The ARCA, Balzer and Albatros.

And the White Letter, Red Label and Garcia.
Can anyone provide a photo or example of any other labeled Mitchell 320 so I can know what I'm looking for? Appreciate any help.

Regards,
Chris

P.S. Looking forward to rejoining the conversations - Had Mitchell Museum "Withdrawals" while I was gone!!

Welcome Back Chris. We missed you too! How was the hunting? Judging from the pics (sent earlier) I'll bet you had a great time! I can't help you with the 320's but it looks like you have them pretty well covered.

Randy

Thanks Randy! Good to be back (kind of) home with all the conveniences and my family. Even though minimal luck hunting - it was great! Commented on your B30 post.

Regards,
Chris

hi Chris,

There could be a very limited run of the 320 Albatros with a ''consul '' decal.
You're the first one to know ..

regards, Dries

Thank you Dries,

That would be very interesting. Appreciate anything you may find on such a 320.

Best Regards,
Chris

Thanks for the reply.
That is what I expected, but, when I open the bail it doesn't release the line. I have to unhook it in a separate movement. Then it doesn't catch the line when I start to real. The bail works perfect either by pushing it or the thumb lever.(Anti fatique mats) It closes smoothly but I need to move the line outward for it to catch an rewind. The bail doesn't look bent or deformed, I must be doing something wrong.
I'll try to send some photos of it. Maybe you can see something I'm missing.
Lee
