    Default Orvis Battenkill great value!!!

    Ordered three of these reels before getting the updated reel. the updated reel really does work right or left hand wind. this is a great reel for my 2wt Hardy. looks and finish are great, this is in my mind a great value in a reel, imported or not. Orvis hit the nail on the head with this one after the update.

    Glad to hear it! I have a couple of the previous version and am very happy with them. Nice to know the updated one is a good value as well.

    Fished this reel Friday! works great and plenty of drag. Size 1 on a 3 wt 6'6" Winston WT. Good job Orvis, I love simple reels and price is awesome. this is what the inside should look like.
