My beloved Shimano spinning reels that I have had and used (exclusively) for almost 3 years recently passed away...(a big bass tore up my drag system) Now that was my first reel that I had ever fel in love with. Every other reel I bought had something wrong with it, and I only kept them as my 1st stringers for a week or so. (I guess I was very picky). Well, I have picked out a new Shimano/Bionic Blade combo from BPS I will be getting for my bday in a few weeks, but I had to get a temporary rodnreel, so I went to Walmart, and picked out a Mitchell combo. My original snake lures had got here today, so I wen tup to a local pond to try em out.
I only got in 2 casts. Every cast the line would unravel from the spool completly and wrap up eevry which-a-way. I will be taking it back ASAP.
Anyone else think Mitchell sucks?
