The Mitchell® 498 saltwater fishing reels are powerful, durable tools that are designed for the tough fishing conditions at sea! Thanks to the Mitchell's bail halo design, the 498 PRO offers strength under great pressure. A legend is re-born with an iconic Mitchell® look and feel!#

For smooth operation, the 498 uses: a 7-stainless-steel-bearing system with instant anti-reverse, a full metal body and side plate for solid gear alignment, and an innovative bail halo for added rotor and bail arm strength under heavy drag pressure. A Carbon Hybrid drag applies consistent drag pressure, and an aluminum spool with line capacity markers tells you approximately how much line you have left on the spool.
