Orvis Battenkill Disc Fly Reel

by Orvis
$339.95

The Orvis Battenkill is a workhorse of a reel. With a carbon disc drag and aircraft-grade aluminium body, the Battenkill boasts many of the features of a premium reel whilst remaining true to its humble beginnings.  

The Story

The Battenkill disc fly reel, a proven legend of the Orvis reel family, is now ushered into the next decade. We didn’t touch the reliability and workhorse nature—those aspects are not for negotiation. Instead, the team worked to tighten tolerances for even smoother operation and updated key facets of the design like improved hand feel on the drag knob, a curved Reelfoot that won’t kink leaders, and new, understated colors that complement the aesthetic of Superfine, Classic Bamboo, or even freshwater Helios® and Recon® rods. Includes the stout Hydros SL drag system, which incorporates six interacting carbon and stainless drag surfaces. Positive click drag is simple and easy to adjust. Each reel is built of 6061-T6 aircraft aluminium with an ergonomic Delrin handle, and changing from left to right-hand retrieve is simple. Mid-arbor with a ported design that pays homage to Battenkill reels of old. A true modern classic.
