Orvis Battenkill Fly Rod 8' 2/2 #8


An Orvis Battenkill bamboo fly rod, 8', 2-piece, 2-tip, built for a #8 line. The rod weighs 4.4 ounces on my scale. Serial #82958. Medium slow, full flexing action. Lightly used condition with modest grip soiling and cosmetic casting cracks at the ferrule wraps. This is a later rod with the slightly lighter cane temper which is done in a three up node pattern. The main wraps are brown with a carbide stripper and chrome snake guides. The grip is a very blunt cigar profile measuring 6 1/2" in length. Oxidized step ferrules. The rod is straight and the ferrule fits are good. The reel seat is a downlocking aluminum screwlock with a pocket cap. Varnished walnut spacer. The rod tube has the original Orvis sticker.

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.
