Which reel seat?

Rate this topic

4 posts in this topic

Are there any ratings that describe the width of a reel seat? Specifically where the feet of the reel slide into the seat. I have a rod that seems to have a really large reel seat. When I put a spinning reel on the feet of the reel doesn't sit exactly in the middle and when I lock it in, the reel actually moves side to side in the seat. Has this happened to anyone else? Is the best way to figure this out just trial by error or is there some scale to use? Any thoughts would be helpful. Thanks

I usually use the smallest seat that will fit over the blank.

 

Some people use always use the same size set no matter which blank they use.

 

The only number ratings on the reel seats I know of is the inside diameter.

 

 

PS -- wrap some tape around the feet of the spinning reel and it should solve your problem.
