    Heck fire, Jack, I can't use but one at a time and my favorite is the one my Dad gave me. Well I guess I could but that would be multi tasking and I do enough of that at work, so I go fishing to relax. LOL.

    I'd have to go out to the garage, then the Rav and I might add it's raining. I'll take a stab at 7 or 8. I Don't Know, but like I said I only fish with one at a time, or I should say feed. LMAO.

    Now tell us why H20 hates turtles. I love turtles, but not to eat.

    Tea here is the picture of the reel you will be getting, note the baitfeeder lever on the bottom of the reel, this works just like a clicker on a abu..I think I will but it on a quantum bigcat spinning rod, I like that rod better than the master rod.

    I know I've got at least 15 rods and reels that are usable. And over 20 in total, I also have a lot of reels with no rods for them, and a lot of small rods with no small reels. I normally use at least 5 at a time, none of my poles are the same though, all of them are different.

    What a question. My nephews counted mine sunday. 65 Hanging in the garage ready to use, 15 in house, 20 or so In various stages of repair in corner of garage, 10 reels that are retired but still usable. I don't know at the cabin. I just can't bear to part with any. I have icefishing, Microlties, ultralites, lites, medium, med/heavy, and heavy for cats and salmone. I just like fishing. I also have 10 lrge tackle boxes of stuff.

    The difference between STUFF and JUNK: stuff is the junk you keep and junk is the stuff you get rid of.

    Jack I have about 18 or so combos including fly rods, spinning rods, bass rods and the fewest I have is my catfishing rods, but thats slowly changing, my birthday ( the big 40) is Friday and the wife is allowing me to get another outfit. Im thinking of another 6500 with some sort of heavy flathead sized rod so Ill have 2 channel rods and 2 flathead rods, thats good for starters.
    Any recommendations?

    Wow, I'm not sure but a good guess is 30, no 40, no, I don't know. Started giving some away to kids in the neighborhood. I'm a jack of all fishing and master of none, so that adds up to a lot of tackle.

    My latest excuse to my wife is "I'm upgrading". She just rolls her eyes and puts money in the budget for tackle about every four months. The latest is a Abu C4, 6500.
