It looks like the end to my most trusted, and yes, lucky, reel. My spool has dissapeared, can anyone point me in the direction of a replacement?

They are the official Uk service agents for Mitchell.
Credit cards/ mail order/ repairs/ servicing/ new reels etc etc.
I've used them myself and they are very good and helpful.

Hi Derrick.
Just posted a thread about my 440A. Wonder if you can help? Just brought it and not sure if its working as it should. Good reviews but in practice not a good reel. Auto bail arm? Press to open but can't get it to close without fiddling about. My other Mitchell is a 410A which i love. Using it like a berk or is there something wrong?

Doesn't it close when you turn the handle ?

No, unless you hold it shut with one hand and turn the handle with the otherwhich is awkward to say the least. Should it just close like a normal bail arn when you turn the handle?

Very, Very helpful.
Hopefully i'll get a lot more years from the 440A when it comes back and i hope it'll have been worth the all the fuss.

Nope, I was born and bred in Stoke on Trent. Moved to Suffolk 10 years ago, better fishing!

now then Nigel, do I detect bitterness from someone who went to a boys only school?
