Re: The Mitchell: born in 1946
Hi I am glad to see this post. Although I am partial to my penn 850ss reels, I have so many Mitchell 486,488, 386's and everything else in between. While enjoying new reels and new technology, I always find myself throwing the big Mitchells onto an old garcia conolon or honeyglass lami and hitting the beach. It is just a special feeling with these reels.. they are so strong, smooth, and beautiful to use... the only issue I have is the drag.. weak.. any suggestions on how to beef up those old drags?
