Factory rod with original sock tube. Blanks are mostly shiny, cork is smooth with some discoloration, dark brown graphite with green wraps, would rate it an 8 out of 10. Love this rod, only selling because I won a Sage ONE in a drawing. Orvis Battenkill 5/6 has disc drag, made in England, spooled with an Orvis Wonderline that still works but is showing some wear. Reel is in good shape with some wear on the rim. Includes Orvis pouch.
