Orvis Battenkill bamboo rod 8' 3/1

For sale here is an Orvis Battenkill 8' 3/1 bamboo rod - serial #8616 made by Cal Skinner in 1949. Originally a two-tip rod, only one tip remains. All sections are straight and full-length. The rod weighs 4.5oz on my digital scale and the ferrules are size 16/64 and 10/64. Rod would cast a 6 or 7 weight line with a DT6 being the sweet spot in my opinion. Rod is in very good condition. The butt cap has a couple of small indentations in it. Other than that, it's in really nice condition and a superb fishing rod.
