Orvis Battenkill Deluxe 7'6 5wt Bamboo Rod


For sale here is a scarce 7'6" Orvis Battenkill Deluxe. Serial #31243 built in 1961. Excellent+ original condition. "Superfine" grip measuring 5 1/2 inches in length. The rod weighs 3 1/4 oz (the label weight is 3 1/8 oz.) Casts a five weight line very nicely on the fast side of medium action. Cap and ring over an all-cork reel seat (a very scarce combination for the Deluxe models, as most were dual rings and the earlier ones had a cedar spacer. The labeled weight of most 7 1/2 foot Deluxe models in 1961 with the dual rings was 2 7/8 oz. versus the 3 1/8 oz. labeled weight on this rod). Excellent ferrule fit (size 12/64). Original bag and tube. The tube is in superb shape. Truly a fine and scarce Deluxe model and one you may not find again in this configuration!
