Default Re: Battenkill Bar Stock or Access

Thank you for the info. I think if I do get a new Orvis, I want the guy to show me how to clean it. I want to see it opened up. I don't want to have a cranky reel to clean. I guess I got spoiled cleaning old click and pawls. They are easy to figure out. I have almost cleaned every fly reel I have now. I think there are two modern reels left. One is an Okuma. The other is a BPS reel, a Hobbs Creek. I think I am gonna sell that BPS reel. I was using it for a spare, but I have plenty of spares now. The reel works fine. It is in really good shape. But it is not one of my favorites. It is a good beginner reel for someone.
