The A&F Bogdan 300M looks identical to the 200M, is the same diameter (3-3/4"), but is much wider. The 300M has the larger drag mechanism that is used in the 1, 2 and 400 Salmon reels. The 200M has the smaller drag mechanism used in all the 3-1/2" (50, 100 and 150) and 3-1/4" (00 and 0) Salmon models.
Salar75, there was an A&F Bogdan 300M on the big auction site, although not listed as so. The foot was replaced with another Bogdan-made (clear anodized) foot and there is some saltwater corrosion on the spool arbor. The reel did not sell on the site.
