I don't guess it's even worth asking if you have ever considered a Steez rod.

I am a big fan of full grip rods (as well as rod brand continuity) and after going through many brands of rods, G Loomis & the Cabelas XML's have really suited me well.  I am sure the Steez is a great rod, but until that sucker comes with a full rear grip, I don't see one in my future.

I can only hope that one day I will be fortunate enough to own half of the rods and reels that have been shown! Absolutely incredible! I have one set-up a Shimano crucial spinning rod with a symetre reel, no pics now :). Am working on getting my very own first baitcaster, hopefully before the new year!

Most (all) of this gear has probably been accumulated

over the years. Speaking for myself, some of my

stuff was purchased in 1997. I don't trade and generally

pick up a rig or two a year, not all at once. My theory is

like Warren Buffet's investment goals: "Buy and hold forever."

And this is something I have often stated: You only "need"

three rigs:

1. Spinning combo for weightless soft plastics and light

lures. My suggestion is 6 1/2' or 7' MF.

2. Baitcaster for "treble hooks".

6 1/2' MHM.

3. Baitcaster for weighted soft plastics and jigs.

7' MHF or 7' HF.

;D ;D ;D

Good thought. I'm the same way, I buy stuff to keep. That's why I'm still trying to decide what rod to get for jigs ;D

In the next couple of years I hope to be at the point where I have five NICE combos (3 casting, 2 spinning), around $200 in each one.

Nice stuff!!

Everyone killer tackle.

I'm going to be building a Revo this winter. Not the most popular reels to trick out but it seems if you look hard enough you can find some cool stuff.

This thread is really making me want to change my christmas list from a bunch of new tackle, to a nice rod. ;D

I know where you can get one. WAY under cost of new... :)

Great collection !!  I'm a big fan of the XML rods also !

Looks like Bassn Blvd is another one of those die hard Loomis fans ::)

Nice inventory and nice tracker boat. Looks like you take really good care of your gear.

The GLX MBR842 could make anyone a loomis fan, I got one and it constantly pulls me away from my steez's.

  Thanks I felt bad about having 8 or 9 rigs and had been sitting tight. Now the temptation is back plus I just got a pretty nice bonus.

  nah I'm going to stay put

Hey Hawk I think a lure thread would be good. If you don't maybe I will one of these days. I'd like to see what other people fish with.

Back then they were pretty new.  I collected all those Daiwas in just a few months.  They replaced a bevy of Revos, EXTs, and other Abus I sold here on this site.  I got rid of some All Star rods and replaced them with Fenwicks.
