Is anyone aware of any for freshwater blanks? Making a freshie rod and would like to go with a plate, but the smallest Fuji make would dwarf the rod.

I would go with a fly seat. Just make sure it fits the reel you plan to use. The seat should also be comfortable in your hand. I have build UL spin rods with a #20 seat for guys with gorilla size hands. Just take up any space with bushings and fill in with epoxy glue.

I second wht Al says. I have used the plates, they arent for that small a dia rod. and more inportantly the point he makes about the user vs what fits the rod. has to be useabel and comfortable first.

Thank you, all- I was reading this and one thing struck me that I can do: user the smaller diameter seiners twine and use that as the base and attach the plate reel seat to that.
