Default Re: Replacing a reel seat

Be firm in the removal, not forceful! If it's not loose enough it's NOT going to come off, so don't go cranking the rod the opposite direction that you're cranking the seat. If all else fails, and it may, use a dremel tool to CAREFULLY cut through the seat lengthwise in many places to remove it. The rod goes all the way through the cork and reel seat to the very end cap. Slow and steady over all else!
