All of it.

I had figured they were LST blanks without the writing, but I think your answer is more intriguing.


100% confident that they are LST's, not Redington. The codes match the LST, the color matches the LST, the single foot guides match the LST, guide wraps same color as LST. They had the big honking LST's as well, like 13' or something guess they were spey rods? Plus it would only make sense that Cabelas would have a prototype of a rod they sell with their name on it.

My Martin Mountain Brooks reel that came with my first combo. I still use it heavily and recently looked online. You can get then for as cheap as $17, but I prefer it over a lot of more expensive reels.

I found an Orvis Magnalite Multiplier reel the other day in my basement in new condition. Forgot I had it. Paid about $25 for it years ago. I put a 7 weight line on it and fished for smallmouth with it. Worked out great, love the 2:1 retreive. I saw one on line for $195 with the original owners name engraved on it (which to me devalues it) and no original case.

I'm also a major fan of Medalist reels. They are what I started with 50 years ago. To me, they are an icon, like a Buck 110.

Not too long ago I picked up a 2010 model Eagle Claw Featherlight, very nice looking rod (if you like yellow) and fishes surprisingly well for a $30 rod

I keep one of those as the knockaround car rod, equipped with the junky cast reel that my starter combo came with.

I haven't really been able to dial it in to a point that it makes me happy, mostly because I've only ever bothered trying it with junky old lines that are probably better suited for the dumpster.

But, whatever. It still catches fish, and its always there.

dammit kev!!! that was supposed to be secret!!LOL! osprey, just a little 3 wt I built up with a mid and tip sections from an old rod. tried out a bunch of sections by taping on guides and a reel till I got one that was "magic"! might do another this winter, after my glass builds are done. and yeah, it was cheap, I had recycled everything from old rods and made a reel seat spacer out of an oak dowel rod. the thing is just awesome casting dries from 3 to 30 ft. I use a nylon furled leader and it will just cast some of the leader if that is all i want it to do. makes a brook trout feel like a real champ as well!
