Active Member
Orvis Battenkill Large Arbor V fly reel. Rated for line weights 9-11, weighs 8.3 oz. and is 4 ¼ “ in diameter. Designed for use in both fresh and saltwater with a corrosion proof frame and stainless steel gearing. Features Orvis’ fully adjustable centerline glass composite drag system that gives a cork like feel. Machined from 6061 aluminum and anodized in gloss black.

This reel is in perfect, as new condition without a ding, scratch, or mark on it. Comes with its original Orvis zip case and a printout of the owner’s manual. The reel shows no signs of ever being used but has been spooled with an unknown amount of what appears to be 20# Dacron backing. Currently set up for LH wind from the factory but can easily be changed to RH (instructions included).

It's all good.

I don't know Daz, but these are great reels.

I have an ancient one in this size that's still smooth as silk. I'd be interested in this one if I hadn't just gotten its twin off ebay with 3 extra spools, so I can spool up all my 8wt lines. The extreme large arbor (a foot per revolution!) is nice for keeping line memory coils out. Very light for its size.
