    had 10 rods last year, but down sized due to them not being used and couldn't justify keeping them. As of today, heres what I have:

    4wt 8'6" 4pc St Croix Avid
    5wt 9' 4pc St Croix Legend Elite
    8wt 10' 4pc G Loomis GLX (going to the grave with me)
    9wt 9' 4pc TFO Ticr X


    Future purchases...

    6 wt 9' 4pc TFO Ticr X
    7/8 wt 13'4" Kispiox G Loomis Spey Rod

    Pretty happy with what I have now, but seriously considering the 6wt TicrX for the salt...

    I won't list them all, but 13 or 14 'spey rods' and about a half dozen 'one-handers.'

    Here is my humble list -

    2 wt 6'6" Orvis Superfine One-Ounce
    3 wt 5'0" Rainshadow Custom Built
    3 wt 6'0" W.W. Grigg GX
    3 wt 7'6" Sage Launch
    5 wt 9'0" LL Bean Travel Series
    5 wt 9'6" Sage FLi
    6 wt 8'6" Fenwick Fiberglass Custom
    7 wt 9'0" Sage DS2

    I really want a new all-around 5wt - I just can't decide between the Sage SLT, XP, Winston BIIX or Burkheimer.

    Hard to decide. :beathead:
