Not quite duplicates, but two of the Garcia Conolon 7'3" two-star blue blank rods, plus a third eight-footer. The top rod in the photos is a 7'3" 2636C rod that I fished as a kid, fifty years ago and more. I bought the others in recent years just to have some extras available.

In bamboo, I am fortunate to have duplicates of some of the Paul H. Young models that I really like.

Kayaksusq, You have caught the fated Brown & Braid disease. Please seek treatment. I can be debilitating.

sort-of-duplicate, FF807 bought as backup for the FFL96-7 that I built decades ago. I realized that FFL96-7 is actually my favorite rod, out of all the graphites, bamboo, and glass I own..
Another sort-of-duplicate set, FL102-7 in both yellow and brown. These are both homebuilds, fishable but not what I'd prefer, so going to rebuild over the next winter.

Steffen 8'0" 4-5wt. I only have one but I've purchased 5 of these now for myself, my two kids, my daughter's fiancé, and a nephew and I don't intend to stop there. There is no better rod to start someone fly fishing for trout and panfish. I probably should buy myself another but they are not just a great fishing rod, they are tough as nails. None have of the ones I've purchased are broken yet despite numerous scratches and mishaps that would have shattered a graphite rod.

NONE and don't see a need. Maybe I have not found the right rod though?

I've never owned identical copies of any particular fly rods at the same time - though I have owned 3 or 4 of the Three Forks 3 weight rods over the years. For a long time that model was my absolute favorite fly rod. My last copy I gave to my mom after getting a Prime 5 weight for father's day last year.

I might be tempted to get another of the Prime 4 or 5 weights though - great rods and I'm sorely tempted to get a mate for one of the rods I have - so I can have two identical rods rigged with different setups.

In my gear fishing though - I do currently have twin setups with some of my bass rods, for exactly that reason.

none for me....yet. I'll probably order up at least one more Steffen 8' 5/6 blank before he retires (plus, if my son likes fly fishing, I'd venture to guess that's the one he'll end up with...hmmm, maybe I should order two).

Not glass, but I own two 8'6" 5 wt. 4-piece Redington CTs.
I bought one on sale and then had to get another, also on sale, because of how sweetly it casts a DT5F line.
Thanks to great timing with Cabela's, I scored them both for half of their MSRP and got them shipped for free.

I just ended up with another Fenwick FF90...Price again was too good to pass up. I have never fished the first on, but couldn't pass up the second... :)

Oh my gosh......

I'm nearly embarrassed and it takes a bunch......

I agree with whrlpool, if you find something you like buy at least 2.

Some Special Forces guys I know say "two is one and one is none"

For an example, I really like Tomo's 7'5" 4/5 hard-parabolic. I have 2 that Christian built and 2
blanks.

That's the most of any one I have but I own multiple duplicates built by different builders.

None in glass (yet) but I have plans for two more 1 piece 10wt Quartz rods from CTS before the end of the year.

I have 2 TFO 8-10 MiniMags that I fish with regularly from the kayak. One is loaded with a sinking line and the other with an intermediate line. (These two rods are to be replaced by the CTS Quartz rods mentioned above.)

I also have 2 Sexy-Loops Hot Torpedo 6wts, although one is for my casting instruction (painted white for the purpose) and is not likely to ever see a hook.

Cheers,
Graeme

Have two Diamondglass 8ft.4wts.2 pieces, one of my favorite rods. Also two Fenwick FF75s which is one of my go to rods for smaller streams.

What problem is that? Duplicates aren't a problem, they are the solution to a possible problem.

Anyway, I always plead the 'fifth' on this question.

I’m too old to need two of anything except underwear but if I wasn’t I would try to find another Winston DL4 9’ #4.

No duplicates but 40 ++ McFarland, Kenney, Leiderman, Paddock’s, Orvis, T&T glass never had reel on . Retirement in a year need to consider serious sale. I realized that I actually need a plan to move inventory especially if relocating to salt water.

So far I don’t have any duplicate fly rods, but I have several fs83c and fs88cs for salmon and steelhead trolling. The closest thing I have in fly rod is a ff755 and an early ff75 larked for 5wt but they are very different rods. If I could get a second 5wt ff75 I would snatch it up though. It’s the best casting rod I have.

I've been seriously considering acquiring a second Driftless Special from Barclay, but since JASTrout has a rod I'd really love to have, I'll hold off for a while. :D
