Mitchell 308 Problem...

    KSUFLASH respect our rivers please

    Tonight as I was fighting a bass to the boat, something odd happened to my Mitchell reel. Sounded like something poped out of place in the gear section of the reel, and the spool itself no longer moved up and down to properly spool the line on the reel correctly. Basically all the line was wound on one spot of the reel. Dunno what happend, but when you attempted to use the handle on the reel to take up the line on the spool, it either jammed, or it felt like something snapped inside....Now I could tell you that the bass was huge, and make a big stink about how i lost a nice bass and it took out my reel, but actually it was about a 2lb bass that i got all the way to the boat, then CRACK!!!!!!!! The reel when to Sheeet!!!!!!!!

    anyone had this problem before?
  2. I think there is a plastic spacer on the shaft that must have broken. I had that happen to a Pinnacle two weeks ago.
