White Spool Saltwater Series - Garcia Mitchell, in 1979, made a five reel saltwater set with sky blue bodies and white spools. The majority of these reels were sold in Europe although, one or two where marketed in North America. This is a very rare five-reel set that brings high value to the collector. The series consists of a 486, a 496, a 496 MP, a 488, and a 498 MP. Of the five reels the 496 MP is super rare with a nominal amount produced in 1979.
