  1. Default Just did a bonehead thing

    I epoxied the reel seat about an hour and a half ago and just realized I forgot to scuff the rod blank before I built up the blank with the fiberglass tape. Anyone ever done this?

    I have. Haven't had an issue with it. If you are concerned just stick the seat in a plastic bag and in boiling water for a bit till you can pull it off (straight don't twist it).

    Usually all I do is wipe the blank down with alcohol. Never had an issue yet. Think of it this way.... how often do folks mention scuffing up the inside of the seat hardware? Just food for thought
