DesignClassic Battenkill Aesthetics
– The Battenkill reels have retro aesthetics with a classic click-and-pawl design. These reels are built with a minimalist design for the angler who prefers an old-fashioned reel that’s lightweight and functional. The lightweight design helps balance smaller trout reels.
Ported Jewel Finish
– The Battenkill’s ported jewel finish harkens back to the Battenkill reels of old. This finish gives the reel a retro aesthetic while keeping it structurally strong and soundly durable.
Bar Stock Aluminum
– The Battenkill’s rugged design is machined from bar stock aluminum, some of the strongest lightweight aluminum that exists. The Battenkill is built to be strong and durable and this aluminum is a large contributing factor to its bombproof design.
– The drag system on this fly reel adds to the old-fashioned aesthetic. A four-position click-and-pawl drag allows anglers to palm the reel and fight trout without an overbearing drag that’s built into many reels today. These drag systems make a clicking noise on the outgoing and incoming for a nice sounding traditional reel.
– A mid-arbor design allows the Battenkill to maintain it’s trout reel feel while allowing increased backing capacity for larger target species. This arbor design makes the Battenkill incredibly versatile and highly efficient.
