since Lloyd brought it up, we haven't done this in awhile.
Here's mine - doesn't include the plastic rods and contemporary reels

Two old medicine cabinets for some of my reels.

The rod rack has moved into the corner and is full now, but no photo as yet.

that's an EMMrod, a reproduction of the 2nd version of the stubcaster, re-introduced by the grandson of the inventor (initials EMM).
I have a 4Bros Cascade on it with 10-lb greenspot.
They work quite well and when I bought that one, they were about $20 - now the prices have kind of gone crazy ($70 - you can get an original on ebay for less).
Another rod that is fun with a minature vintage baitcaster, and useful in tight spaces (brushy banks with a slip-bobber).

A modest assortment...I use most of them...the one in the middle is a single pawl, no extra spring, birdcage, 1392...so late twenties, early thirties? love the silky feel and the sound puts a smile on your face...maybe the lightest I've had in my hands...the mirror in the background messes with taking the photo...

Sandman, nice reels - the 1392/94 are the most practical Pfluegers going (or gone) and ooze cool vintage looks, while keeping great functionality. The round line guard, while certainly big cool factor, makes winding line in evenly a bit more troublesome, but not by much. Again, nice reels, and display cabinet!

I think you're right -- a Century L100. I had one, fished it until the line grommet was scored completely through. I still have the L100A that replaced it. I think the only difference is the dual handle on the A model.

These are cell phone shots, so I apologize for the poor quality.

The pictures are about six months old, so some of the reels have changed ...but for the most part it still looks the same.

Dean has been working on his sundries a long time (and has always offered really nice reels in trade for them)

John, hoping you can fix your photos above.

If you are talking to this John, I can see them just fine. Others in some threads just show as image - this whole postimage thing is weird.

As said, weird - I see all pics on this thread fine, but some other threads here and CFRF not so much - nothing consistent.

Building a rod stand has been on my mind for awhile, and I set a goal of putting something together this winter. Originally, I thought I'd purchase a two tiered end table and drill holes top and bottom for the rods. When I looked at some unfinished wood tables I learned that the dimensions inside the table frames would limit me to too few rod slots. Then one day I came across two excess storage cabinet shelves at my wife's office. They were made of 3/4" plywood and had a bull nose on the front. Not exactly furniture quality, but at 18" x 29" I felt I should be able to put together a frame/box to separate them and give me considerable capacity inside the frame. One feature I needed was mobility as the stand will be located in my shop, in front of under stairway storage.

I broke a few carpentry rules, but the result is capacity for twenty one 2" inch tubes and eight 1-5/8" tubes. The stand is mounted on wheels that swivel so mobility isn't a problem. Working great, and in a pinch it serves as a coaster for my beer.
