Re: Orvis Battenkill mid arbor V (7wt question)
I still own a few BK mid-arbors. The drag will stop a train if you ask it to. I always used the V on my 9 wts, the IV on 7's and 8's. The V will likely be a little heavy on the 7wt and even on some 8's. Used, they are fetching about 125 most places.
For 50 bucks, I'd hang onto it til you ramp up to a 9wt. You'll not run into that deal again. Have fun.
