The 5 I polled did not include 3 bamboo rods in various state of repair or disrepair. Two of the rod I would like to have appraised by a professional rod appraiser. Main reason is I would not want to ruin their value by refinishing. Anyone know of a good reputable appraiser?

Rods I own also includes the ones the old man fishes, cause we trade off, and lets face it, when he is gone they are mine and visa versa. Around 50 also.

I am kinda embarrassed to say but I have a plethera (cool word,uncool spelling) of rod's.I sometimes feel like a drug addict that has to hide his stash so other's wont know just how hooked he is.
I have about 23 or so,although only 4or5 see the light of day during the run of a season.I do make a effort to break out a couple of the "lookers" every season just to remind myself why I bought them in the first place.I have a couple that I dont dare fish either because of fear of damaging them or because of total impractalcality such as my 0 weight's 1's and 2's,and my 9 and 10 weight's,as I have no use for such rod's any longer.
I am the first to admit I am a horder when it comes to rod's,some call me a collector but i'n my mind a collector has a valuable collection with a few rare or very valuable rod's sprinkled in,my pile of stick's is graced by only med to high range rod's.Like I said I am a horder.

Ten rods ranging from 3 weight to 8 weight in different lengths from different
manufacturers. If my wife was to read this, honey I'm just kidding! I just have one!
