Oh I have my eye on the Radian for sure! The HP has had a few reels on it and none ever really fit the spirit of the rod well enough to keep them there. I put my 7/8N on it for giggles but it was a bit too heavy to balance it out. The best balance and feel came from a Ross Rhythm 3.5 but the drag wouldn't stand up to what the rods is used for. I think my solution is going to be a Bauer Rogue 3. The weight is what the old Ross was but the drag is bombproof. Plus I just like the reel and want one in my collection anyway. My thinking is it would make a great Albie rod in the salt, it has already proven it's self on sweet bass and redfish.

Default Re: Just Curious: How Many Fly Rods Do you Own

Probably a dozen or so. I have four I regularly fish , starting from the bottom
A four weight JK Fischer
A six weight sage RPLX
A five weight Loomis
A ten weight Loomis
An eleven weight ugly stick that's my shark rod

Then there are the others. An Allbright five piece I bought as a backup and never used. A couple of good bamboo rods I inheireted. A scattering of fiberglass rods I bought years ago and hold onto. Its a disease.
