Re: Replacing a reel seat/uplocking hardware
I am in the process of doing this on a graphite rod as an exploration into rod building.
The SINGLE experience I have and what I found out before undertaking it was that you are going to probably loose/replace the cork that is over the top side receiver on the uplocking system. There doesn't seem to be a way to get it out without destroying the cork. Other than that the process is pretty simple.
It might be possible to find a new uplocking set up that would match up with that one little piece you can't get to. I THINK that would work fine, so long as all the pieces fit togeather correctly or if the pieces could be altered to fit togeather correctly.
There are a lot of people in hear you should listen to other than me. Post up what you find, if you would. Am really curious about this.
I'm currently out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message, and if you would like to reach me by phone, please hang up now.
