Orvis Battenkill Deluxe 6'6 Bamboo Rod

For sale here is a 6'6 Orvis Battenkill Deluxe. The rod was purchased from Len Codella in 1990. Serial #17260 built in 1955 by George Reid and Cal Skinner during the Wes Jordan era. The ferrules, wraps and cork grip were restored at Orvis shortly after the current owner acquired the rod from Len. The rod has not been fished post-restoration, so it's in near mint restored condition (there are still some very minor marks on the wooden reel seat spacer). The factory original tube is missing the sticker. The rod bag is a replacement. It casts a DT4 or WF5 very nicely.
