Default Re: nice and easy

For me the easiest way to remove an old reelseat is to cut down the length of it on both sides with a dremel cutoff wheel (cut just the reelseat, don't hit the blank). I then stick a screwdriver in the cut and twist. The two halves of the reelseat will usually just pop off. Cleaning up what's underneath is usually more of a pain.
You can buy a cheap rod drier on ebay for $30-$40. They're not great quality but will dry a flyrod much better than turning by hand.

If your handy you could easily build yourself a hand wrapper from some pine boards like this one for under $20.
