Just Wanted To Start A Fun Thread

Recommended Posts

I know most people, including me, pair up rods and reels due to performance and techniques they're being used for, but doggone it, some rods and reels just flat out look good together, too.

So what rod and reel combos have you seen that just flat out look good together? For me, one that jumped off the page at me recently was the new Bass Pro Bionic Plus reel on the new Bionic Blade rod (the maroon rod, not the micro guide white one). I'm sure there's more, but if looks alone was enough to make me buy one, that one would be it. Of course, I make better buying decisions than that, but this post was just for fun anyway so there it is. What ones have you seen and liked?

I think the Okuma Helios baitcasting combo and spinning combo are pretty darn sharp looking.

X2 on the Helios.

Coastal Zillion or Abu Toro NaCl would look good on an Abu Garcia Volitile. I like the blue.

How about a Chronarch thrown onto one of those new white micro guide Bionic Blade rods?

I try to aesthetically match my combos when  possible.  How the combo looks factors into the purchase for me.

 

The Damiki on the far left now has a Fuego on it and the Zillion is on a Zillion rod but the others are the same

I love coloured reels on white rods -- don't know why. I finally got to put that in action when I slapped on a burnt orange reel on a white rod for a topwater setup I put together.

I love a ci4 on an older cumara. In the sun it just looks sooo good together.

Yes sir! The reel seat matches the finish of the reel perfectly. Even in indoor lighting it is stunning!

My St. Croix LTB and the Pflueger patriarch spinning reel. Not only does it feel great and perform well, the blue color finishes on both are nearly identical.

Im about to get the Revo S and im having trouble deciding what rod to get, but I think imma get the Veritas cause they are both white. I think it will be very sharp

I like the way the Curado E brings out the little green highlights in the old Cumara. My favorite is the Ci4 on an NRX though.

I'm just the opposite, I like white reels on colored rods.  That's why the new Bionic combo flipped my switch, it's a white reel on a maroon rod.

I must confess that I almost bought a Carrot Stick just because of the brilliant orange...and I probably would have slapped something like a white reel on it if I could have found one up here...

Probably not supposed to match but my bps pq looks awfully nice mounted on my academy h2o ethos rod. Silver and blue can't go wrong with that!

Quantum Catalyst PT baitcaster 2009 model (orange) on a Lamiglass XL704C (also orange). Sharpest looking combo in my limited arsenal. Also like the looks of my Pflueger President spinning reel on a St.Croix Premier.

I never remember how to attach a photo here, but I just finished a butt wrap on a rod where I used a metalic gold underwrap on the first 8in. added a couple of trim bands and a feather pattern in brown/orange/red.  Thought it would look awesome with my Sol until I mounted my Browning on it.  Black and gold, my fav. Of course blue and silver really jump start the bling thing for me.  BTW jbsoonerfan, my favorite fishing shirt is aqua and I wear a red/white/blue hat most of the time and no, my momma doesnt' dress me. :eyebrows:

Any gold (Conquest comes to mind) or orange reel, matched on the brown Legend Elites look fantastic.  A Sol spinner on a Fenwick Elite Tech walleye stick is really nice as well.

 

The Zillion Type R on a Steez Compile-X looks pretty sweet.

 

The original Fuego/Fuego combo is slick. 

 

I will soon be matching a Certate 2500 on a new Legend Xtreme 7'ML.
