That new Battenkill is a very nice reel for reasonable money. Just the thing for the mountains - no need for large arbor or hi-tech drag. I have a couple of glass rods in 2 and 3 weight; with the Battenkill reels they are perfect for the smaller streams.
Mine is about 5 years old I also have a 7;6" 4wt glass rod. I bought it for that rod it is a perfect reel for the park.
