Many official fly reel seats can be installed up or down, but you will need to add a butt cap..... they're like 50 cents tops

Schneiders often has some good deals on rod building supplies.... such as Pac-Bay reel seats half price
Dean a pass through is a seat you can put a blank through in any direction, but I blew it and thanks to Rip for waking me up, I only use spinning rod seats, there cheaper and they work fine for me, thanks Rip, I'm getting older.
