This thread has been interesting, entertaining, and worst of all inspiring.

I think after all the tricked out reels I've seen, I've been inspired to build one myself.

I had thoughts of getting some cork from my Hobby Lobby and put them on one of my reels, but so far it doesn't look like it going work out. Need get back to drawing board.  :)

WOW - there are some outstanding rigs in this thread!

My humble battery is all low- to mid-range stuff...just tools... Some of the reels date back to the 1960s and there's another half-dozen rods up in the attic.

I'm probably the only one to notice the BRE Z car in the poster in the background. :)

Someday I'll pick up an early Z car. If there are any still around.

Hey Goose52!

Your's is my favorite pic on the thread...It looks

like you take great care of your equipment and

have it arranged for a very nice presentation.

Outstanding post!

Lol. nicely done. I am always curious to see what other fellow anglers have on their Lamiglas Excel rods since I've picked a few up during the Black Friday sales. Currently I have a 704C with last seasons Revo STX.

The current influx of the new valued rods are a welcomed sight. It's fun to pair them up with reels in your collection. I enjoy fishing my Cyclone Evoluzion/Aldebaran combo just as much as my Lamiglas Excel/Revo STX combo.

I slapped a daiwa viento on mine but im looking to buy an abu revo inshore with a power handle. The black widow 2 looks really cool with the matching accents.

Robert, holy crap. Do you actually fish with that stuff? I'd be scared to use it. Why spend so much on rods and reels? It is pretty awesome though :)

I use all my stuff.  Scratches add character.  :)

Gosh, thanks - I'm sorta speechless on that!

I'm really enjoying seeing all the modern stuff in this thread but to add a bit of a blast from the past I went out to the garage and took another photo.

I got the Ted Williams 400 as a gift from my Dad probably around 1959 or 1960 - it was my only reel for about 6 years and caught a lot of fish. I fished it this year on a 60s vintage solid glass rod - caught two little bass and put it away 'till next year. (Those solid glass rods sure make you appreciate a modern graphite rod!)

The Lido (what the heck is a Lido!) spincast reel I got for one book of SSS trading stamps. For a rod, I had found a 5.5' plastic handle casting rod laying on the bank on Tamiami Trail in South Florida. I cut off the plastic handle, bought a metal ferrule for a couple bits, and then bought a new chucked handle for a buck or two. So, the whole rig cost me a book of trading stamps and about $2.50 cash. In the summer of 1967 (my last year living in FL) I was trolling a Rapala (or maybe a Rebel) with the Lido rig down a canal off the Trail and caught a 4 3/4 lb largemouth...I remember it well..... I have the Lido mounted now on a cheap BPS rod for use by my wife.

Lotsa memories !

Hahaha, I agree. You've got some amazing stuff. If I had that I'd frame it all!

WOW - high praise indeed! Thanks!! I have modern stuff (meaning mid-1980s or newer) for my primary fishing gear, but I also have many fond memories of the early days and I still fish this old stuff occasionally just for grins. Now, I need to take that Lido back from my wife and go catch a bass on it (hopefully, it still has some sort of working drag after reeling in the 4 3/4 pounder 42 years ago)...

Those Lamiglass rods are one of the best looking rods made IMO. :)

6'6" M/F Shimano Crucial - Shimano Symetre 2500FI

I have several more around here, but the rest are mostly panfishing/ultralight setups.

Hey Stasher1, those are some clean and well organized setups.

Thanks. I don't typically keep gear very long, so I'm extremely careful with it to make sure I minimize the depreciation. :)

As a matter of fact, there are two rods in that pic that'll wind up in the Flea Market shortly after Xmas.
