Re: Up locking vs. down locking reel seats
All of the reel seats I make are DL with a sliding band. I wouldn't use anything else on rods that I was going to use. A reel will not drop off a properly fitted sliding band seat. I have an high-end uplocking seat that backs off at least once every time I use it.
