Orvis Battenkill Reels
New in 2013, the long awaited Orvis Battenkill Reels have arrived on the scene with much anticipation. Orvis has re-invented the low cost, machined, bar stock reel. We will see these fine little reels on the streams, rivers and lakes throughout the world in large numbers, very soon.
The Battenkill Reel does not have a disc drag. It does have a new re-designed click and pawl mechanism that is adjustable in four increments. This newer design of the old click and pawl offers easier adjustment that is simple to understand. Anyone can make the adjustments by simply looking at the pawl.
By eliminating the disc drag mechanism, it enabled Orvis to trim some weight making these reels very light. Additionally, the sound of the reel is reminiscent of the older CFO reels we purchased in the 1970’s. That beautiful sound is not exactly the same, but it is close.
A new anodized finish color called “black nickel finish” completes the beautiful design. One more additional touch is laser engraving of the logos and reel name. The Orvis Battenkill reel is a game changer, a winner and a lightweight fishing machine for lightweight rods.
