Mitchell 300X Spinning Reel
I had the opportunity to try one of the 300X reels out on some sheepshead. These fish are hard fighters and on eight pound test line, a five pound sheepshead puts up quite a fight. The drag system works extremely well, as witnessed by many long hard runs on these powerful fish.
