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...

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

Self-worth is how you value yourself. It’s not based on what others think of you or the things you have (or haven’t) accomplished—it comes from within. But it’s easy to forget that our worth isn’t determined by outside forces -- each of us sets our own price.

In life, be flexible, willing to listen to others, willing to change your mind based on your good judgement -- that is how progress is made, and new horizons are discovered.  When the winds of change blow -- A flexible limb moves and thrives -- a stiff and stubborn limb just snaps.

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
