    I counted and have 13 rods ranging from 12' to 5'6". I have 3 that needs the tips replaced. I'm up to 5 baitcasters(abu garcias) and have 3 spinning reels. My next rod will be a 7000 to put on the 12' rod or my 9' Catmaxx rod for river fishing.
    I'm building up my collection but I'm sure there are a lot more members with a lot more than I have.:roll_eyes::confused2::wink::smile2:
    Enjoy, I'm proud of what I have, Its taken years to accumulate all this.:wink::big_smile:

    You got a nice selection of rods there. I am slowly building mine up too, got alot of lightweight rigs but only 3 big cat setups.

    How are you storing all your rods is what I would like to know. I think I need to get myself some organization for mine.... I am getting a collection as well. Just not as many as you! :wink:

    Regina let me have a closet all to myself for my fishing stuff, coveralls, tackle bags, chairs and a bunch of other stuff. I'd like to have a rod rack but really have nowhere to put it at.
    Hope this answered your question....:big_smile:

    We have an old 2 megapixel digital and recently put 500 meg 14bucks at wally world . Now it saves 270 hi res pics! Recently had the eye pop out of my cattmaxx rod tip. Instead of trying to pop tip off......... usually get them shut in car door......I heated it with a propane torch ....slid right off .....then wire brushed tip (took off paint) and fuji tip fit wonderfully. Used that hot glue they supply with guides and fingernail polish so it wont spin in summer. So far so good.

    John your collection is looking great. You probably have more reels/rods than your wife has shoes/purses. Who will be playing catch up?:smile2::smile2::wink:
