Thread: HURRY UP, ORVIS 50% sale on Battenkill Bar Stock Reels this weekend only

    I have a 1-3 for my 2wt rod. It is a very small reel. It works just fine but don't think I'd be bothered by the next size up.

    Hmmm....Idk. The new BBS reels look pretty sexy. Might have to hang in there.

    I stopped in the shop this afternoon, they haven't stocked any BBS reels since last summer. The guy there said Orvis is discontinuing the BBS and focusing on the Access. Too bad.

    Nick, I have the old traditional click and pawl Battenkill reel - the BBS's older brother - I use the 3/4 on my 8' 2 WT and I think it's fine, though I've never had anything smaller to compare it to.

    I got more confused and distracted more then ever when I asked the forum about some gears.

    I already made the payment for the BBS V, but then I cancelled the order. Something in me was telling me it wasn't the right thing to do since I just bought an Allen Kraken 3 reel and the shipment is not even arrive yet (Impulse buying).

    What? Discontinuing it? That's too bad. Access are a different aesthetic and I don't know that I've heard a bad thing about BBS. I wasn't going to pull the trigger but now I'm rethinking it...

    That is only what the old guy in the shop said, so if you need an excuse to buy one, here it is. Blame me!

    tip: to increase your chances of not being stuck in customs, send it via FedEx fastest delivery option (overnight might be too expensive, but 2 day?) mark as b-day gift/personal item, etc. with express packages, there are so many of them that customs mostly lets them through and concentrates on larger/slower delivery option boxes/parcels. (i know this from experience, i ship for my work globally alot)
    romanl - great advice. Thanks! We have some friends coming over from NJ later this year. Looks as if they might be bringing a really neat present!

    They are discontinuing these because they are releasing new BBS reels that look really nice.
