The Mitchell MX4 Spinning Reel runs very smoothly due to its 7 ball bearings and has a Slow Oscillation gear transmission. In addition, the body and rotor are made of graphite, which keeps the reel nice and light. Mitchell has released a reel with the MX4 that has the same technology as the more expensive MX5. This by making the non-essential parts from cheaper material. The perfect all-round spinning reel for a very low price!
