Same here, I have several 204's, and 304's, a gazillion 300's, 2- 400's, about 5- 302's, 2- 302-N's, 2- 402's, couple 386's. Love them Mitchell reels. You have a fine reel there.
Wouldn't mind finding a 486 reel, I need one. I had one, but I loaned it off, and it never returned.

FLaggie that looks like a good find. I remember family members using Mitchel when I was a kid. Where do you guys buy yours?

Usually antique shops or flea markets... usually max 20 bucks but I have gotten a few fer 10:thumbsup: I just think the aesthetics of the reels are SEXY...like the round body instead of like the others that are oblong...:thumbup:

There's a pawn shop in DeFuniak Springs, "Pawn plus two", that has a bunch of large Mitchells at a good price. If anyone is interested, I can run by there and photograph them and get prices.

I actually found a guy on FB marketplace that bought a storage unit and was just selling off the contents. He has about 3-4 more Mitchell's, of various sizes and condition. His name's Tony Carlson. Nice guy. Has a shed full of rods/reels. https://www.facebook.com/tcarlson714
