Orvis Battenkill Deluxe 6'6 Bamboo Rod


For sale here is a scarce 6'6" Orvis Battenkill Deluxe. Serial #15886 built in 1954 by George Reid and Cal Skinner during the Wes Jordan era. Excellent+ original condition. Weighs 2 1/8 oz. Works well with a 3 or 4 weight line. Diminutive 3 7/8" superfine grip. Cap and ring reel seat over what appears to be a butternut wood spacer. Excellent ferrule fit (size 11/64). Could be a replacement bag but the tube appears original. Truly a fine small stream rod and one you won't find for sale very often. This one won't last long at this price.

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.
