I have at least 10.
here's the 2 "newest"
The rod with the green reel seat is a Wright & McGill 6'6", Feather Light.
The other one is a Wright & McGill made, LLBean labeled, 8' ...???.
It's a rocket launcher what ever it is and can really throw a line

I think I am going to pick up that CGT in the near future. Wonder if they would let me cast it in store if I brought my reel and line.

I own 2 old glass fly rods, a Berkley & a Daiwa. They won't replace my other rods, but I do enjoy using them. Have some baitcasters & surf spinning rods also that are glass or glass composites. Graphite is fine, but I still like glass too.

A bit OT, but I've had more interest in glass rods lately. Have just purchased a couple of trolling/boat rods that are solid glass to go with some vintage Penn reels, and am looking to add a few more eventually. My hope is to get some use out of them with my grandson's, and can't go wrong with glass for durability.
