Perfect Fit -
Perfect fit for my Superfine Touch, 7 1/2 foot, 3 weight. Simple, small and balanced with the rod.
Nice product -

I've only had this a couple of weeks, but so far seems to work well with my new Orvis 5 weight.
Best buy in a lightweight fly reel -
By: flyfisher227 from Western New York
The Battenkill 1 fly reel is the perfect match for my new Superfine Touch 3 wt. rod. I know it will be the perfect outfit for brook trout fishing in Potter County Pennsylvania.

Added this to arsenal as a backup to my access reel for trout. Not had to use it too many times, but has performed great so far. I would highly recommend this to someone who fishes small streams, smaller fish. This is my go to reel for Smokey Mountain streams.
GREAT REEL -
By: thebuck from Las Vegas, NV
My Battenkill is a great reel. Even though it is not a CFO, which is a greater reel, it's a good size and weight and has a nice sound when line is being ripped off it. i still love my CFO reels , but they cost substantially more.
Perfect small reel -
Came ready to use with excellent winding. This reel has been smooth and perfect so far. Easy retrieval for a lefty.
Solid Simple reel -
I've used a Battenkill II reel for several years, so I bought another one for my new 5 weight rod. I like the simplicity and classic design. Nothing more is needed in a fly reel.
