Can someone tell me about what size these reels are? Compared to a Penn 650,750ss? Trying to picture in my mind how big these are as I have never held one in my hand.
And I am assuming they are built on the inside like a 3000 only scaled up. Is this correct?

No. They are the same reel as the 3000 (old 300/400 med size) with RH/LH crank except they have a skirted spool. 9800 is UL, 9000 is medium, 9600 is large. 3800 is UL, 3000 is medium, no 3600.

I've never fished one of these, or even handled one. I did fish a lot of Shimano reels made during this time frame and had no issues with the quality of manufacture, in fact in many ways I thought the Japanese Shimanos were smoother out of the box then the French Mitchel 300s, as much as I hate to admit it. How does the build quality of one of these compare to a late 80s/early 90s Shimano line. Its been to long to remember the nomenclature, but my favorite was a 4000 size with fightin drag and Quickfire II.
Thanks

Resurrecting this. I'm going to get a 9600 to finish my left hand saltwater Mitchel collection. I realize Mitchell has nothing to do with these, but they are a dirty little cousin. Has anyone ever opened one up? Are they similar to a Mitchell or is it cosmetic only? How about the quality of materials?
Thanks
