FS: Orvis Battenkill Large Arbor VI - NEW IN BOX

I bought an Orvis Helios last month and got a free reel with it (well sort of free, the rod was $800). I also bought another reel so I selected a Battenkill Large Arbor VI instead of a reel to match the 8 weight. I don't know when I'll get around to using it for tarpon or tuna though so I'm just going to sell it and buy another reel when the time comes.

Reel is black and brand new in the box with warranty card. Retail is $239. Make me an offer.

If you're not familiar with the VI model, it has a drag 3 times the size of the normal Battenkill and is meant specifically for big fish like tarpon and tuna. It probably matches best with a 10 or 11 weight, but is light enough to go on a 9 easily, and has a strong enough drag to go on a 12.
My passion for catching fish is eclipsed only by the fish's passion not to be caught.
