    My first spinning real was a Mitchell 300. Looked just like your 308. Bought it in the 60's. I loved that reel. Not sure what happened to it but I wish I still had it.

    My first reels were the old Bronson reels made just a few miles from my home. In the early 60's started using the Mitchell 300's and still have quite a few Mitchells (several different models) in the old reel box that is on the back shelf.
