Orvis Battenkill Disc Fly Reel

Orvis give a classic workhorse the once over

The Battenkill disc fly reel is a proven legend of the Orvis reel family. They didn’t touch the reliability and workhorse nature — instead, the team worked to tighten tolerances for even smoother operation, and updated key facets of the design like improved hand feel on the drag knob and a curved reel foot that won’t kink leaders.

The reel uses the stout Hydros SL drag system, incorporating six carbon and stainless drag surfaces, and the positive click drag is simple and easy to adjust. Each reel is built of 6061-T6 aircraft aluminium with an ergonomic Delrin handle.
