Mitchell 302 Half-Bail – ????-1952 = No production records but maybe 4,000 to 5,000 units!
Mitchell 303 Half-Bail – No Records This Model Was Ever Made but Maybe?

Mitchell 302 Full-Bail – 1953-1977 = 2,192,741
Mitchell 303 Full-Bail – 1954-1970 = 161,438

In 1951 Garcia started advertising an artist’s rendition of a Mitchell Salt Water half bail with a 2-screw Cover Plate. In 1952 the Mitchell 300 series was now offered with a full bail and in 1953 this Salt Water quickly changed to a full bail as seen in the 3rd picture, the first known Mitchell Salt Water schematic.

The first 2 photographs are from an unpublished 1952 Garcia tackle catalog. The artist rendition on page one again shows the two-screw Cover Plate some believe was the first version but in the next page it shows this reel in a box with a four-screw Cover Plate. Note the box tray is another artist’s rendition with the “Mitchell Salt Water” on the top-left, similar to The Mitchell (300) box. The true first version box is shown below.

 

A Mitchell 302 Salt Water Study by Wallace Carney is in progress to help explain all the changes in the reels shown below but for now, please see our Schematics Gallery and our Advertisement Gallery for other information, specifications and much more.
