With a machined aluminum spool and body, this fly reel is highly durable against rocks and smashed only to show small dents without sacrificing functionality. This Orvis reel is available in sizes I-V (1wt. – 11wt.) in traditional style and IV and V (7wt. – 11wt.) in Spey style.

Modern Battenkill Technology – Battenkill has been around for many years and has gone through many iterations. The current Battenkill disc coil retains the original simplicity of the original coil models while adding modern technology where necessary.

The drag system has been revised and the finish of these new reels is top notch. The coils are machined to increase durability. Orvis has completely redesigned the Battenkill but kept the price down to make it a great choice for any angler.

6061 T6 Aluminum – Battenkill’s rugged design is made from 6061 T6 aluminum, one of the strongest and lightest aluminum available. The Battenkill was built to be strong and durable, and that aluminum is a big reason for its bombproof design.

Sealed Disc Drag – This version of Battenkill, the ‘Discus’ version, has a sealed disc to improve the fish’s fighting abilities. If you prefer a click and ratchet design, check out the other version of Battenkill. This reel’s drag system works well for bass, pike, permit, tarpon and more.

Carbon and Stainless Steel – Carbon and stainless steel make the Battenkill brake strong and maintenance free. The resistance, regardless of wear, maintains the quality of stopping the line and starting inertia close to zero.

Mid-Arbor – A mid-arbor design allows the Battenkill Disc to retain its trout reel feel, allowing for greater support capability for large fishes. It makes it incredibly highly versatile and efficient.

Orvis Lifetime Warranty: The Orvis Lifetime Warranty covers all coils against defects in materials and workmanship for the life of the original owner. The warranty does not cover accidental breakage, improper breakage, or excessive wear and tear. Beginning September 2019, Orvis will charge a $30 handling fee for all reels returned for repair/warranty.
