I am selling an Orvis Battenkill 10/11 Fly Reel and two spare spools.

Usually when people try selling stuff they say how they only used it a few times, etc.. I've been using this reel 60-70 trips a year for the last 4 years. I have been using my other Battenkill 10/11 for the last 7 years, and have never had a problem. They are very easy to maintain, and have been stripped down and cleaned thoroughly at the end of each season.

The reels don't have any corrosion. There are a few scratches (obviously) on the bottom of the reel frame, and the reel foot is slighly tarnished.

This reel is rated for lines 9-12 and holds 275 yards of 30-lb dacron with a 10 weight line. This reel is very light, with a 3 3/4" diameter.

This reel would be a great starter reel for someone starting to fish the salt, or as a backup for a main rod.

I'm asking $80, shipping included via USPS Priority Mail. If someone is interested, I will sell both reels and four spools (six spools total) for $150.

Please email with any questions!
