Hi Guadalupe, Is there a decernable difference in the taper or feel of the Steffen 8' 5/6 and the 8'6" 5/6 steffen? Do you think they are completely diffferent blanks, or just an extended 8' blank? Thankyou. Davedog

I'm definitely wired in the mold of: "buy, try, and move them along if I don't love 'em"

I have had a ton of enjoyment sampling a variety of rods over the last ~ 6 years. The new realties of shipping costs have slowed my roll, but that's OK as I'm getting more dialed in to what I like.

Fiberglass quiver:
Browning Silaflex 322970, 7' - 5 wt
Cortland FR-2000 1-625-1, 7' 6" - 5/6 wt
Phillipson Royal Wand RWF70C, 7' - 6 wt (tied for favorite)
Browning Silaflex 322975, 7' 6" - 6 wt (tied for favorite)
Browning Silaflex 322980, 8' - 6/7 wt

Graphite quiver:
Hardy Shadow Sintrix 220 - modern rods made in Korea with a wonderful medium fast action and nicely appointed.
Harris Sportsmail in the UK had them on blowout/clearance a few years back, amazing bang for the buck.
4 wt 8' 6"
6 wt 9' 0"
8 wt 9' 0"

On "probationary test period"
Cortland Pro-Crest 534, 7' - 6/7 wt
Orvis Golden Eagle, 8' HCF (7 wt)
Simply need more hours on the grip fishing/casting

Hardy Perfection 7'6" #4 (One of the smoothest rods I have ever cast - deliciously slow.)

Winston "Stalker" 8' #4 (Bought from Matt Leiderman - wonderful rod.)
Larry Kenney 813 (A "Hall of Fame" rod and one that folks will still covet in twenty years)

My small collection fills my needs though I’m always looking for a Winston glass rod, someday hopefully.

CGR 5’10” 3 Greys reel
Fenwick ff756 4pc Voyager
C. Barclay 70p paired with Hardy Featherweight Golden
Steffen Bros. 8’ 4/5 3pc
Steffen Bros. 7’9” 5/6 3pc both paired with Abel (Steve) TR in the 2 and 3
Fenwick ff857 2pc with a Galvan Standard 3.5 in green.

Parted ways with a few, but I think these are all keepers.

I also have a St. Croix 6wt mystery Anniversary rod, thread and pics on here.

Open to suggestions for a dedicated reel for the Fenwick. Thinking a Medalist?

Only been a glass convert for three or four years now and I’ve been focused on rods I’ll fish mainly. Just starting to get into collecting. Here’s what I’ve managed so far.

Scott F Series 723-5
Lamiglas honey 703
NFC Iconoglass 764
Orvis Superfine Glass 764
Hardy Sintrix glass 5/6 8ft
Epic 686
SA System 6
Browning Silaflex Medallion (think it’s 6/7 wt)
Hardy Fibalite 8ft 6wt
Fenwick 858
NFC Iconoglass 8 1/2ft 8wt
Hardy Richard Walker Superlite (has lower grip/ use as switch)
Hardy Esk (use as switch/ has lower grip)
Echo Glass 12’6 6wt Spey

Of course, the family is still growing.

I’ve kept a few graphite rods from my past life although I do fish my Burkheimer two handers for steel and salmon but I’m always hunting for glass two handers.
