Orvis Fly Rods For Sale

9 posts in this topic

Ok Gents,

 

I'm thinning out the herd in order to streamline my selection and get some extra $$$ to go towards the Sage rods (10# Xi2 and maybe a 12#) I've been wanting since last season. I'm at work right now so no pics available, but if there is interest, I'll take and post some when I get home tonight.

 

1. Orvis Silver Label 9' 9wt, Tip Flex, 2-piece. Initially purchased in 2000, but has not seen the water since 2003 when I switched to a 6 & 8wt for inshore fishing. Blank and guides are perfect, grip shows normal wear, but no large defects. This is a sweet casting rod! Comes with original cordura tube (green) in good condition. Original price was a bit over $300, asking $150.

 

2. Orvis Silver Label 9' 10wt, Mid-Flex, 2-piece. Same description as above, but one year "younger". :lol: Cork a bit less used-looking. Blank and guides in perfect condition. Purchased this as a back-up to my Loomis GLX 10wt, which I've since sold (worst mistake ever crying.gif ). Been on the water once, but lawn-cast a bunch of times. Being a mid-flex it doesn't suit my casting stroke. Also comes with green cordura rod tube. Original price was over $300, asking $150

 

3. Custom made Dan Craft Signature V 9' 10wt 3-piece. Fast action blank made with full wells cork grip, struble double up-locking reel seat and Fuji SiC guides (first three double foot, then singles on the rest of the rod). Wraps are maroon and silver. Extra #20 stripping guide 4" from first stripper to help in getting a few more feet of distance--a helpful hint from some of the guys in the Rod Building forum!!! PVC rod tube (the Home Depot kind :lol: ). Used exactly three times. Blank was $99, components around $75. Asking $150 OBO.

 

4. Also have an Orvis Frequent Flyer 908-7 fly rod (http://www.orvis.com/store/productch...subcat_id=7445) which has never been used--still with plastic on the cork handle! I'm leaning towards holding onto this rod...but can be talked into selling biggrin.gif . Reatil is $225...perhaps $175???

 

I want to give the members here a shot before going to ebay. Let me know if there are any questions or pic requests.
