Default Mitchell

Byron!

I don't think Mitchell reels were invented by Garcia. They were sold by Garcia in the U.S. before Garcia bought the Swedish reel maker ABU. The origin of Mitchell is from Sardinia by Italian watchmakers who later moved to France to start Mitchell. Mitchell is still a very strong brand in Europe.
