I have too many... 6 rods right now, AFTER narrowing things down. Here's how my quiver breaks down.

Trout:
9'6" 5 weight Sage Pulse
9'6" 6 weight Sage One
9' 6 weight Sage VXP

SMB/Carp:
9' 6 weight TFO BVK
9' 7 weight TFO Mangrove

Salt/Big Game/Huge Flies:
9' 8 weight Redington Vice

If I were to add anything, it'd be an 8'6" 4 weight for small streams and my occasional trips to the smokies, a 10' dedicated nymphing rod, or a musky rod somewhere around a 10 weight... But I'm in no hurry at this point and feel like I have too many choices already. I'd probably sell a couple of these first.

How's the 956 Flex? Especially compared to the Radian?
It’s not a Radian, but very good for half the price. More of a mid Flex than the Radian and a bit slower, but certainly still fast. Definitely missing the tip feel of the Radian, but not needed as I use it as a dedicated streamer rod. I think it’s a perfect rod for throwing streamers to trout.

Poll results won't be sent to our spouses will they??!!

More than 10 for me.
Seriously, I don't have a fly rod problem, I'm just in the process of replacing all my pre-built rods with ones I've custom built.
At some point that number will stabilize(ish).

Streams in the GWNF, SNP,Potomac, Rappahanock and
I am new to this but so far I have been very, very lucky and was able to get my hands on the following rods, most all of which I was able to get either via ebay or from members here all who either had injuries or folks died and their family was selling their stuff:
2wt 6' 6" Winston LT
2wt 7' Thomas and Thomas LPS
3wt Winston BIII X
5wt Winston BIII X
8wt Thomas and Thomas Emerger
9wt La Crosse Custom .

Everyone of these is a keeper but the two 2wts. I plan to fish them both for brook trout in the mountain streams around here this spring and summer. One of them if going to feel like it was made for me and the other probably will feel great but that it needs to find a home with someone else from here. Right now hard to justify keeping two of the same thing. Anyway my current 7 rods will probably go down to 6 by the end of the summer.
