Default Re: Inserts: wood vs. graphite

I've seen lots of pictures of older bamboo rods with rather clunky looking metal reel seats. I really don't know squat about older rods, so perhaps higher end ones had nice wood seats, but I've been surprised how many had rather plain metal seats.

Still, I prefer wood seats for trout rods and metal for bass and pike. Just personal I suppose.
