14 (and counting) for me...and no, I don't feel one bit bad owning this many!

Orvis Superfine Touch 6' 1wt
Orvis Superfine Trout Bum 6' 2wt
Hardy Aln 5' 2wt
Orvis Helios 8'4" 3wt
Sage TXL 7'6" 3wt
RL Winston Boron IIIx 9' 4wt (5pc)
Orvis Trident TXL 7' 4wt
Sage Z Axis 9' 5wt
Orvis Far & Fine 7'8" 5wt
Orvis Clearwater 9' 6wt (my first rod now hanging on my 2yr old son's wall)
Orvis Hydros 10' 7wt
Sage Flight 9' 8wt
Sage Bass II - Smallmouth
Tenkara Iwana 11'

I actually use all of them too...some more than others.

I guess the good thing is that I can use my reels on more than 1 rod, right?!

3 to the 3rd plus 4.

Sad thing is, I am dying to get a new rod.

Since the 286 RPL I have not found a rod that I really really love.

I've built rods as gifts, but I've never given one of mine away. They become like family to me. Some more impressive than others and some I have no use for, but they're still family I'll have to try and give one away...

As of right now I have 2 4wt (one's a loaner), 1 5wt, 2 7wt, and a 10wt. I will have two more 4wts, a 6 and another 5wt. I cycle through rods, I buy something that grabs my attention and sell it when another does, that however is fading as I've narrowed it down to the most used, best casting, and last but not least eye pleasing.

Not likely, I'm actually in support of rod collecting (the more the merrier)

I started accumulating rods but have been selling most of them off the past few years because I could not see any reason to have them lying around not used when I could sell them to someone who would use them. Plus, I use the $$ to upgrade, and I avoid the complaints "don't you already have enough rods!". My current selection:

4wt: Winston WT; Burkheimer 489

5wt: Burkheimer 595; Sage Z-axis 590 that I built (also have my very first rod, an orvis 5 wt that hangs near my tying bench, and another 5 wt I built for my spouse). I bought the Burkie 489 and loved it so much that I sold a 5wt ZXL and a 6wt XP this spring to get the 595.

8wt: Winston BIIX that I will probably sell to get a new 7wt.

Spey: Meiser Highlander S 13' 7wt; Burkheimer 8142

All of these rods are fished heavily and have their own place, except for the 8wt which is not used so much anymore because I prefer spey to single hand for steelhead.
