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.

Looks like a man who truly takes care of his gear! Great collection.

They don't look that new anymore.  But cleaning them after fishing, and some lemon Pledge on the rod and handles does keep them nice looking and makes the handles easy to get clean.

Rowland, what is with the HMG handles? They look weird for some reason. Do they all look like that or did you do something to them?

Are you talking about the three in the seperate picture?  If so, those are the new HMGs that came out this year.  They are a matrix mix of rubber and cork.  I like those handles very much.  They have the soft feeling of cork but are a bit grippier.  I think they do add a bit of weight, though.

I CAN'T BELEIVE I TOOK THE TIME TO SCROLL THROUGH THIS THREAD !  They make a new patch for this addiction guys. Gum is on the way.  I hope you all have read your home owner's insurance policies.  Many policies only cover sporting goods equipment up to $500.00 0r $1000.00 and require a binder for property beyond that.  At least if you have a fire you can show the adjuster this thread to prove you had it.  Hey Road Warrior, I still have my two 5'6" glass pistol grip Lews Speed sticks. My fishing partner of 32 years and I have a nostalgia day once a year. We use an original Big O, an Okie Bug spinnerbait and Mann's jelly worms.  If I only had my 1972 Terry Basser boat back.  No I never did own a baby blue short sleeve jumpsuit, just the hover hat.  ;D ;D ;D

Time to bring this back! I'm sure a lot of you have added stuff, sold stuff, or just completely given your arsenal a makeover.

When my Citica gets back from supertuning I'll post a pic.

WOW, those Core/Cumara pics are SHARP!!!

I'm definitely gonna post some new pics. Like Fat-G said, I've gotten new gear since then. My stuff was posted at the bottom of page 1 when this thread was new. Since then I've gotten a Citica E, a Curado E7, and a Symetre, so I'm gonna do some more pics. :) ;D :)

Man, that Curado just above me is really LOADED with line!! :) ;D

I want a couple of those Carbonlite handles.

Have you called BPS or visited their parts center? I believe they're relatively cheap iirc.

As of yesterday, Outdoor World Rod & Reel Repair had NO Carbonlite handles in stock.

EDIT - OWR&RR is the BPS parts center...

I'll probably have to go to the Richmond BPS. I just want one for my Citica, since I fell and bent the stock handle. Plus it would look cool.
