Default Rod to reel fit question

So my sister just gave me her never used fly rod. She bought it a few years ago, but decided to stay with her tenkara style bamboo stick and string. The rod she gave me is a crystal river finalist combo rod and reel. I know it's not high quality, per say, but hey it's a good deal.

Anyway, I took this rod home and fit the reel to the rod, and there is a noticeable looseness between the two. The reel fits snugly up and down, but wiggles side to side, like the wings on the reel that fit in the seat are flatter than the space in the seat. Is there a cheap way to fix this? I'd like to try this rod out. Thanks guys!
