Orvis Battenkill Bamboo Fly Rod 7'6" 2/2 #6

1282

A nice Orvis Battenkill fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tip and built for a #6. 4 ounces. Mint condition. Medium slow action (I might prefer it with a #5). Lighter color cane temper than the older Orvis rods. Three up node pattern configuration. Brown wraps. The step ferrules are oxidized. Carbide stripper and chrome snake guides and tip tops. The grip is 6 1/2" long with a slight cigar profile and a large blunt front. The reel seat is a downlocking screwlock of aluminum with an aluminum pocket cap. The insert is FAS walnut. The rod sections are glued with resorcinol leaving a telltale black seam. The rod is new from the factory. It comes packed in a tan cloth bag and a gray hardcoat anodized aluminum tube with a darker gray collar and top with the rod particulars engraved into the top. The Orvis data sticker is affixed to the tube.

Shipping Information
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.
Other Terms
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.
