Orvis Battenkill Bamboo Fly Rod 7'6" 3/2 #6 [SALE PENDING]


An Orvis Battenkill bamboo fly rod, 7'6", 3-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #6 line. Impregnated model. The rod weighs 4.7 ounces on my scale. Serial #66606 which dates it to 1972. Medium fast action, a little quicker than most Orvis rods, and the rod is nice and straight. Excellent overall condition with few signs of use that I could find. Darker cane done in a three up node pattern. Wrapped in red throughout with a carbide stripper and chrome guides and tip tops. The grip is just shy of 7" and is shaped to a western profile with a hidden pocket cap in the heel. Large bright front cork check. The reel seat features an uplocking slide band with nickel silver threaded barrel and cap, while the ring is aluminum. The spacer is a mortised and stabilized burl. The rod packs into a green cloth bag and a black anodized aluminum tube with brass fittings and the Orvis data sticker affixed to it. 

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.
