I was just given an old Mitchell 302. The reel seems in pretty good condition but there is an intermittent click in the gear train. I can strip a 300 in my sleep after fishing them for years, but the 302 seems a little more complicated and I am getting older.
I would like to send it to someone for service and conversion to a fixed bail. Can anyone recommend someone to do the work.
I have got a lot of modern gear, but it would be fun to put an old school setup into service. This classic reel deserves it!
