Anglers of a certain age will recall that the original Mitchell 498 dominated the beaches and casting courts through the 1970's and 1980's. This new model as well as sharing the name of its well respected predecessor also has the solid and dependable feel which made the old 498 a legend.
The design of the new Mitchell 498 is however firmly in the 21st Century and 7 ball bearings, powerful 4.7:1 retrieve, balanced rotor and power handle give the modern feel which anglers now expect from a quality fixed spool reel.
The deep spool holds a respectable 320m of 0.5mm mono and although the spool is narrower than more casting orientated reels the 498 scores when using slightly thicker lines and when fishing over rougher more demanding terrain. Permanente anti reverse, an 11kg front drag and an aluminium handle with large EVA knob all add to the feeling of power you want in a reel which will not shy away when the going gets tough.
