For sale here is a 7'6 impregnated Orvis Battenkill bamboo rod. 3 3/4 oz. 2/2. Rated for a 6 wt but throws a 5 best. Medium fast action. Serial number 30673 made in 1961. Grey bag, aluminum tube with blue, white and gold paper label.The rod is in excellent condition overall. The ferrules are 12/64 and the ferrule fit is excellent. On one of the tips, the male ferrule and first guide above the ferrule were re-wrapped. Additionally, a replacement tip top appears on this same tip section as well as a re-wrapped guide below the tip top. The result of these repairs performed by Orvis in 2014 is that this tip is a tad short compared to the other sections....5mm to be precise. The other sections are full-length and original. None of the aforementioned repairs affects the rods casting abilities/qualities. Get this one for a bargain while it's still available ;-)
