Nice, The TR2's, I have one with the wooden insert on the back.
For me, I think the Ross R2 was, and still is a classic design.
Quite fond of this though.

An all time great from Orvis, IMO.

I have the Orvis 7/8 SSS and love it. Mine has the Orvis crest on the center of the drag knob. Well made reel of 80's design.

The drag is superbly smooth. It is very easy to take apart and clean after a rough exposure to saltwater, something I wish newer reels allow.

Thanks for the pic, I'll try to post mine later.

This page has been filled with nice reels, those Abels are gorgeous, but I must make my humble contribution to the thread. A brand new Orvis Battenkill Bar Stock II fly reel arrived today. I really wanted a Galvan Brookie, or a Hardy Lightweight, but it I liked this reel a lot and buying it for $100 meant I can get fly line sooner and get fishing.

It is on my Winston BIIt 8' 3wt. I think the nickel silver reel seat compliments the finish on the reel nicely.
