Orvis Odyssey III Fly Reel

For sale here is an Orvis Odyssey III fly reel. Made in the U.S.A.. The reel continues to enjoy quite the cult following 20+ years after being introduced. Designed by Jim LePage for Leigh Perkins at Orvis and marketed in the Orvis catalogs beginning in 1994, the reel was ahead of its time performance-wise but because of its unconventional appearance and poor promotion it soon vanished from the catalogs.

The features include a palming rim, two inch diameter cork/composite drag surface, recessed counterweight, smooth radiused edges, knurled drag-adjustment knob, and a click in both directions.

Capacity:
8WF+275 20#
9WF+225 30#
10WF+175 30#

The reel is in excellent condition with a few cosmetic marks. Direct drive. Left hand retrieve although I think it can be converted fairly easily. Weight 9.5 oz. Diameter 3 3/4".

Comes with an Orvis reel case.
