Y'all just keep reminiscing and I'll just keep fishing my Curados, Chonarchs and 13 reels. I like it right where I am.
I am not following what it is that you mean...

Amen, brother....I have a drawer full of every reel I ever bought (except for my very first baitcaster - a red 5500 or 5000 as I recall - which I gave away). They are all in the box, with the wrench and the owners manual and parts diagram, and were cleaned and lubed before I put them away and all still work pretty well. They have their place, in that drawer. But the Abu Five (a short lived replacement of the 5000 I think) is the biggest disappointment of a reel I've ever purchased. By the time my then wife bought me a Calcutta, I was primed for a baitcaster that would throw a soft plastic more than 25 yards with the wind at my back.

Pretty sure it was a nostalgia thread. New car technology is better than points, condenser, carburetor, etc. People still make threads about their favorite old cars.
