Get Reel

Post by Crispy PAC » Wed May 15 2019 20:59

As start of a major. Clear -Out / thinning out of the tackle addiction, recently sold 3 4500b’s and a couple of 6501’s, so tonight I thought i’d do a “stock take” and frightened myself somewhat. 41 coarse reels ( that I could put my hands on)!
23 Baitrunners
9 fixed spool (non BR)
5 Multiplers
4 Closed Face.

Broke down further as
22 Shimano
6 Okuma
5 Abu
3 Daiwa
1 Quantum
4 Other

This does not include sea or fly reels!!!
How many does one need!!

I have about 12 baitrunners and 5 fixed spool non-baitrunners. They're mostly quite battered and well used so I've never thought about selling any. I'm hoping to pass them on to the kids if they get interested in fishing. I have one who already does so she's getting the use of a couple of old 6000 res.

Sincere thank for posting your list, now I dont feel so bad.

Ones needs;
Say one reel for each discipline and an infinate number of spools to cater for the various lines and different species and presentations.
Spare spools cost almost as much a reel so it makes sense to buy the whole reel and keep the body as a spare.
Atleast that is how I explain it.

Fear same here.
Collection increases with time, but favoured 10% probably get 90% of use.
Same with lures....

And I thought I had a lot of reels!

Maybe I should consider getting some more 🤔

Most of my baitrumners are reasonably old, the newest being Shimmy XTEA
But they are like new as I really look after all my stiff.
A sprinkling of OCD 😁
