Default Re: Need help finding a reel seat

To tell you the truth, I urge you not to try to plan on building a rod to match your skeleton reel.
Those reels are as cheap as they look. There's not a single one that you should expect to last under normal conditions.

Personally I 'recycle" all kinds of rod components.
That nickle silver reel seat that I used to refurbish one of my cane rods was one that I've had packed away for 30 years and originally got out of a dumpster.
It's a life long project..
