This is a splendid Orvis Battenkill in the popular 7 1/2' length. Rod has 12/64" ferrules and weighs in at 3 5/8 ounces. Great rod for a 5wt, casting great in close, or reaching out for well-controlled presentations in larger water. Original bag and tube with the paper "Charles F. Orvis" label, now a bit tattered but still showing the serial number 17951. These rods are a perennial favorite for general trout work. This rod shows very little evidence of use beyond the soiling on the cork.
