Default Question about my Orvis Silver Label rod

I received my Silver label Mid Flex 6.0 rod about 13 years ago along with a Rocky Mountain III reel. The rod is 8.5ft and 2 5/8oz 5wt. The rod snapped shortly before I headed to college and didn't get around to fixing it until now. My problem is Orvis no longer sells the Silver Label line. As far as I know Orvis will replace it with a rod of equal value and style. Yet I have been out of the game for some time and am not sure what rod line is of equal value nor do I even know what my rod originally cost. I have no idea what rod would best fit my rods feel. On top of that I have read a few stories about Orvis giving customers rods of lower value which I would obviously like to avoid. Any help or advice about price of my old rod and a new model that would best fit would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Ted

I think most Silver labels originally sold between $150-$200

They list on ebay all of the time....keep an eye out

I also don't think the Silver label had a lifetime warranty....I think it was 10 years ?

I checked my records.

The last Silver Label rod I bought was in 1997.

A HLSRM9084 9' 8wt 4pc

It has a 25 year warranty
