Orvis Battenkill Multiplier 5-6#

Orvis Battenkill Multiplier 5-6#

Found over the other side of the Seven Bridge a Orvis Battenkill Multiplier 5/6# reel.

The Orvis Battenkill is a well made and robust reel if slightly heavier than my prefered Hardy Lightweight range but all the same will perform well. It’s slightly heavier feel will balance well with my Hardy Perfection 8 1/2 ft 5# cane rod. This is the only Orvis reel I have owned and is now quite a rare find especially in this condition.

The Orvis Battenkill Multiplier was made by BFR, it is a great reel to play bigger fish that you need to control quickly with a drag system that will slow even the most energetic of fish, in fact I’ve heard some people say they would stop a speed boat…
