Default Orvis "All Around" Rod

I'm looking at an Orvis "All Rounder" 8' 6 wt. rod on ebay. Can anybody give me some history or experience with this rod. Any information will be appreciated.

Does the seller list the age of the rod? I have a 79' Far & Fine 5wt and it is the best rod I own.

I google searched Orvis All rounder and came up with a general reference that mentions an Orvis Green Mountain All Rounder made in the late 80"s:
