The reel seat sliding retainer and recessed hood are ported to minimise weight, this is a light reel seat for a screw fitting. It is a compact seat that will also work well with shorter and light line rods.

Trim bands for a fighting butt available separately - see product extras.
For blanks with a butt diameter larger than the 9mm insert bore this reel seat model can also be mounted by trimming the butt end of the blank and fitting a spigot or stent of 7-9mm diameter to take the reel seat. Make sure your spigot will fit the butt of your blank first! By very careful and patient hand reaming the purchaser could increase the insert bore up to about 11mm.
