Orvis Battenkill Disc Fly Reel
The Orvis Battenkill Disc fly reel delivers improved, modern technology, while offered at an entry-level price.
The Battenkill reel has a long and successful history at Orvis. Known for being simple, trouble free, and easily accessible in price. Welcome to the powerful, technologically advanced, and yet still accessible new generation of Battenkill reels.
This latest Battenkill Disc version is true to its heritage in looks and performance, but updated with the latest in design improvements and a significantly more powerful drag. The porting and finish pay unmistakable homage to the Battenkills of the past, but this reel incorporates our best-selling mid-arbor design. Underneath that mid arbor is the same sealed carbon and stainless drag system found in the Hydros SL. The reel is built of 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum with an ergonomic Delrin handle and changing from left to right hand retrieve is simple. In black nickel. Imported.
