FS: Orvis Battenkill 10/11 disc light spey/switch reel

For sale:
Orvis Battenkill 10/11 disc reel. This is a great reel for light spey or switch rods in the 6-8wt range. I've loved these reels enough that I have owned three of them. I've used these reels on anything from my old 9140 Sage brownie to my 9.5' glass switch rods. These reels hold (spey rated) lines in the 6-7wt range easily. I've used these reels with a Delta Long 6/7, AFS 400gr, Rage 390 gr, 7/8 Windcutter, etc. Reel is 3.75" diameter with a medium width drum. The disc drag is smooth and can be set light or with enough tension to slow a strong fish.

No extra charge for the steelhead mojo, the fish pictured with the reel below was among a handful caught on waking flies on the Willamette in OR.

Price $80 , shipped CONUS. Paypal preferred.

Thanks,
Todd

I have another one of these reels for sale, same price $80 shipped. This one has a metal spool release cover. Here's some pics of this reel in action with a fresh run summer steelhead caught one day and wild spring salmon the next.
