ORVIS BATTENKILL V DISC FLY REEL : 9-11WT
The Orvis Battenkill V Disc Reel is the heavy-duty solution for big fish. The classically styled exterior hides a drag system modeled on the bullet-proof Hydros SL drag system. Meaning that the Battenkill V Disc reel has the capacity and the stopping power for targeting huge fish. There has been a long and historically successful line of Battenkill reels through Orvis history. Simple, proven, maintenance-free, and a great performance value. This latest Battenkill Disc version is true to its heritage in looks and performance but updated with the latest in design improvements resulting in a more powerful drag system. The porting and finish pay unmistakable homage to the Battenkills of the past, but this reel incorporates our best-selling mid-arbor design.
Underneath that mid arbor is the same sealed drag system found in the Hydros SL incorporating six interacting carbon and stainless drag surfaces. Positive click drag is simple and easy to adjust. The reel is machined from barstock 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum with an ergonomic Delrin handle. Easy conversion from left to right hand.
