Orvis CFO III Limited Edition Reel


A rare Orvis CFO III Limited Edition fly reel, 3" diameter and currently set up for RHW (though easily switchable). This reel appeared in the 1977 and 1978 catalogs along with Limited Edition Orvis Classic Fly Rod with mahogany presentation chest. This limited edition model was limited to 300 reels, and this one is #275. The reel was actually priced separately in the 1978 catalog but only offered as part of the presentation set in the 1977 catalog. The reel was made in England for Orvis by Hardy. Designed to hold a WF6 line + 50 yards of 20# backing. The reel weighs 3.0 oz. Mint, unused condition. A fine example for the CFO collectors out there. These don't pop up often!
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.
