What rods do yall have? Brand, Length, Action?? (not what you want but what you OWN)


I have only 2 rods at the moment. I had 4 but two of them got broken, one I don't use, and I bought another one tonight.

They both are Berkley Cherrywood Graphite--7 foot--medium

One is for my baitcaster and the other is for my spinning reel.

I really love these rods and I have put one of them thorugh hell and high water, and it is still like new.

I have a mess of rods but majority of them are lower end but they do do their job.

The better half of my rods are:
1 - Fenwick 7'6" "Flippin Stick"   
1 - Fenwick 7' "Trigger Stick" (a med heavy slow action crankbait rod),
2 - 6'6" All Star Medium Action spinning rods.
1 - 6'6" Pinnacle Medium Action baitcasting rod
1 - 6'6" Pinnacle Med Heavy baitcasting rod
1 - 5'6" BPS Power Pro Medium Heavy baitcasting

then i a few other lower end berkley and bass pro baitcasting rods.

I am saving up for either a Kistler Helium LTA or a G Loomis spinning rod. Hopefully by this winter I will own one of the two.

or

It's a tough decision... ive always dreamed of owning top end G Loomis but then Kistler came along and I love their exposed blank in the handle.

For bass I have 4 of the Shimano Callisto/Sojourn combos, they are good combos for the money.

I carry 15 bait casting rigs in my boat and 2 spinning rigs.
all but 1 are castaway rods ranging in length from 6-6 to 7-6 all with Revo reels in 3 deferent gear ratios. one spinning rod is 6-6 and the other is 7 foot they both have spider wire reels on them. the one rod that is not Castaway ia a new BPS carbon lite which I really like just wish it had cork handels instead of EVA
As for how many do I own. there are about 15 other extra rods some with reels hanging in my garage.

I forgot all about this thread.

My rod situation has changed drastically.

My pinnacles ALL died an untimely death... closed the door on them both at the same time lol

I still have the other rods but I retired one of the AllStars, gave another away to a kid fishing in my pond, as well as another couple pinnacles I had.

I have added the following rods to my arsenal over the last couple years:

1 G Loomis Mossy Back 7'2" medium xfast spinning rod
2 RK Custom Rods MH XFast 7' Bait Casters
1 RK Custom Rods 6'8 MH XFast Spinning rod
1 RK Custom Rods 7' Medium spinning rod
