A great collectible Saltwater High Speed real for the fisherman or collector. This vintage 1960s Garcia Mitchell 402 reel is in Excellent working condition and will last you a lifetime.
This model reel is still a preferred reel among many saltwater fishermen here in Florida and in other coastal areas. The reel is marked Made in France and has a serial number of 2 726 052. We believe this is one of the earlier body types. There is still 100% of the blue finish on the metal body but there are signs of use as you would expect. Most of the wear to body is on the bottom bracket where the bottom was rubbing. Otherwise nice looking for a 60 year old reel.
This reel has a Line Capacity of 250 yards of 25 pound test line. This heavy duty high speed spinning reel can be used for heavy freshwater fishing or medium saltwater fishing. It can be used for bass, barracuda, bonito, catfish, cobia, dorado, halibut, lingcod, pargo, redfish, snook and stripers. You can also use this for lake trolling for Lake Trout and Salmon. You can fish 15 -30 pound test line and fish on the bank, in the surf or of a boat.
