The Curated Take
This reel is a great choice for the angler who is looking for a classically styled reel with a high performing drag at a value price point. This drag is fully sealed so it is virtually maintenance free and you can you it for both fresh or saltwater fishing. It comes with a full lifetime Orvis warranty and has been in production by the company for over 70 years so you know you are getting a quality, long lasting product. The drag has plenty of poundage to stop large fish. The negative factors is that it is made in China and is partially cast so if you drop it the reel is going to ding up easily. It also is not a large arbor design so there is going to be a slower line retrieve time so It's not as suited to species that like to run line. Great for Bass and Trout.

There has been a long and historically successful line of Battenkill reels through Orvis history. Simple, trouble free, and easily accessible in price-the ultimate in function and simplicity throughout the years. Welcome to the powerful, technologically advanced, and yet still accessible new generation of Battenkill reels. This latest Battenkill Disc version is true to its heritage in looks and performance but updated with the latest in design improvements and a significantly more powerful drag. The porting and finish pay unmistakable homage to the Battenkills of the past, but this reel incorporates our best-selling mid-arbor design. Underneath that mid arbor is the same sealed drag system found in the Hydros SL incorporating six interacting carbon and stainless drag surfaces. Positive clicks drag is simple and easy to adjust. The reel is built of 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum with an ergonomic Delrin handle and changing from left to right hand retrieve is simple. In black nickel.
