Orvis Battenkill Bamboo Fly Rod 8' 2/2 #6 [SALE PENDING]
An Orvis Battenkill bamboo fly rod, 8', 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #6 line. Serial #77540. The rod weighs 4.2 ounces on my scale. Good used condition. There is some soiling to the grip and a hook dig on the corner of one tip. Three up node pattern construction. Resorcinol glue. Brown main wraps with no edges. There are some cosmetic casting cracks at the ferrule wraps. The action is medium slow. Carbide stripper and chrome snake guides. The step ferrules are oxidized. The grip is 6 1/2" long and shaped to a medium cigar profile. The seat is an aluminum downlocking screwlock with a pocket cap and varnished walnut insert. The rod packs into a maroon bag and a gray frost coated aluminum tube with 95% of the original Orvis data sticker intact.
We ship at cost to the buyer and in the majority of cases do so via UPS with full insurance and signature. There are cheaper options but our experience has been that you get what you pay for and that it's not worth taking risks when shipping what are often one-of-a-kind items. Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
Unless otherwise noted, all items come with a 3-day inspection period during which they can be returned to us for a full refund (provided that they are in the same condition in which they left our shop). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If an item is returned, we will issue a refund within 10 days upon receipt. Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
