I know many of you fix and maintain reels for a living or side job. Me, I like doing the maintenance on my Ambassadeurs almost as much as fishing with them. I've recently returned to fishing with reels and have been on a minor buying spree between Evilbay and a local fishing forum. I now have 3 6501 C3s, 3 5501 C3s 3 4601 C3s and 1 3500C. I might fish 2-3 days each month, mostly beach casting for perch and off the jetties for rock cod and lings.

Do I have a problem?  Grin  Maybe this is the wrong group to be asking after reading through the thread on collections... Cheesy

You obviously have a problem but a few more reels will help.

Yup. Sounds like you have a pretty serious problem. A good solution for you would be to head to your nearest BPS or Cabela's and pick yourself up a nice, new Ambassadeur...

What? Me worry?

A new or used-old-stock reel is fun, interesting, stimulating, even a "new adventure" of sorts. There's alot of cool stuff that comes along with it: Old stock; history/ possible collectability, ratings, service, repairs, possible upgrades and your own construction & performance ratings. NEW; ratings & reviews, evolution, pre-fishing service, personal performance & engineering ratings.
Lately, I'm startin to get the itch: DAM Quick?, an Italian or English spinner model? An old Fin-Nor? My first Penn International?...

Only you can judge whether or not you have a problem —

Plus, if you think you have a serious issue — it is already too late — so you might as well just continue.

I hear tell that about 90% of the things in the world — are much worse than collecting reels.

Just like the song by the group Kansas — “Carry On My Wayward Son”...

Best,

Fred

I heard about a 10 or 12 step program for an addiction like this. Guess 10 or 12 steps to your computer and get on ebay and buy some more.

You don't have a problem. I only counted 10 Ambassadeurs. I have at least 20 (at last count) and I don't have a problem. Roll Eyes
