New revolutionary reel seat

One what u saw at Fishermen's headquarters fits any inshore reel up to VS 150, Stella 6 k Penn 4500. Reel seat on show has 2 ply carbon. Biger for 200-275 going to have 3 ply! It means unless you hit with hammer couple times would be indestructible, for example I fall down on rocks ones, rod was gone, rotor and reel leg bend from 4K Stella and reel seat was just fine ending up on different rod :-)

Is this thing flexible?  Not sure I want to put a rigid seat on a parabolic rod that will bend to the seat...  Also, spending 15X the cost of a Fuji seat to save 2 oz seems absurd.    That money better spent on better guides IMHO...

It flex less than standard nylon reel seat (fuji) but because have contact with blank just on ends (around 1" on both ends) plus bends inside blank won't break ,never happened to me and many fishermens in EU. I have few travel rods build on 12-14 saltwater fly blanks with parabolic action with out failure. I agree cost a lot more than regular than standard fuji but same reel seat painted by matagi cost 5-8 times more than plain black fuji. About guides You r complete right good quality guides makes different like day and night but is also about technology-price just first torzite or sic titanium cost more than my reel seat. Weight would be more than 2 oz because with my innovation you able skip eva or cork. Comfort is another plus after all day long jigging you feel different big time.

I think it's awesome to come outwith a new product,. I think the shape and material is awesome, I have a hammer handle cork grip someone made me 10 years ago, same shape it's very comfy, much more than a regular Fuji, the NPS is similar.

 

Why be misleading promoting the product? I wish I could save 2oz on my Fuji seats and defy laws of physics and make something actually weigh less than it weighs. What kind of voodoo magic is in this seat that it weighs negative weight If I eat a lot of these will I lose weight too? Care to explain how you can save 2 oz on something which weighs a little more than an ounce?

And for good measure, here's one with an arbor glued in, so it takes .08oz of epoxy to glue up, so figure add another .08oz to attach to the rod. BUt then you have to ream teh arbor to fit, so in teh end, you're goign to end up with a reel seat, insert, and 2 coats of epoxy weighing at most 1.25oz

Billy,

Maybe Sharko is including the grips you would use as well. This maybe the case as his reel seat kinda incorporates both. If this is the case if you add two grips you could get 2oz less. Is there freshwater models. Also can the angle be customized? One issue I see is if the angle of the reel doesn't allow you to place the guides where they need to go.

Dan u right seat can be very comfortable grip .Yes what U c is freshwater version going finished forms for saltwater next few weeks . Freshwater reel seat can be installed on banks with diameter from . 25 to almost . 6 inch (6-15 mm),and take most of small and medium reels up to 6 K Stella and VS 150 and has two ply of carbon fiber .Saltwater would be from . 3 to .8 in (8-20 mm) and take all freshwater up to VS 275 , Stella 14K and Daiwa 5500 and looks like new Makaira 30000 going to find out next week when I have reel in my hands .Saltwater seats going be made from 3 ply of carbon fiber

 

Angle I don't think is problem actually is big plus ,most of saltwater reels has spool shaft parallel to blank/reel seat ,just Daiwa and couple off main stream reels has 4.5° angle between blank and spool shaft.Because shaft in Stella is parallel to blank and first guide is to close, line going out of line roller (jigging rods),another plus line going more to center of guides.Plus we create completely new layout .....but let's talk about later when few surf rods with reel seat for 275 and new layout get to ,me going to have few rods on same blank but different guides spacing and seats than we can compare

Fishy believe or not I wish I could. Let me explain why, freshwater seat taking around 5 h just to make and all process takes almost 2 days to complete product from scratch because to 5 h labor u have to add all drying,baking and lock assembly. We selling on EU market for around 65$-70$, but saltwater version would be stronger because we added 30% more material (3 not 2 ply of carbon fiber) and going take more time. Let me finish first batch to find out labor costs. All seats R 100% hand made like frame super cars and airplanes. We where first in fishing industry who made fully carbon fiber seats, plus You can eliminate grip because my seat can be use on inshore/surf fishing as grip. Alps or Matagi seats cost 50$ and made from black nylon with fancy inserts or painted. My reel seats coming with 10 years warranty

So what if you want a foregrip and rear grip? You looking into any design options to incorporate a grip? I really hate holding bare blank and fight big fish with the foregrip
