What's in your reel collection?

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

I can populate this list very easily because I keep a maintenance record in excel. It helps me track service intervals and age of line for some of the stuff that isn't used as often as I'd like. It has taken me quite a while to amass this collection and it serves many fishing applications. They are all in pristine condition and I take great pride in ownership of the collection. There are some amazing collections listed in the forum, just crazy stuff :D

Holy cow, I only have 13 Shimano baitcasters of various versions and when I clean them each year think it is too many.

You guys make me feel a lot better about my own habit :lol:

I am in the process of making the long overdue "master list" of all my gear, some for insurance bt mostly so I can keep track of my reels, I am modifying most of them and I cannot keep track of what bearings/misc parts are in what reel and what line is on what spool. As for my current reels;

Casting:
---------------
PX68
(2)sv105
Alphas Finesse Custom
Zillion TWX SV (soon to be sold)
Steez Ltd SV
sv103
Ringa SSS
Alphas 150h (on the way out too)
Concept A

Spinning:
---------------
Stradic Ci4+ 1000
Stradic Ci4+ 2500
Stradic FJ 1000
Daiwa BG2000

How are you guys storing all your reels? I have been keeping combos together but I need more room on the rod rack. Right now I have them in plano pistol cases but I don't like that solution.

Get a Rod Rack that has enough space between rods to store your reels too. I keep reel covers on all my reels whether in the rack on rod or in the reel box stored in my bookshelf cabinet.
