Tape ons/ reel seats

A reel seat might add as much as 30-50 dollars to the cost of a rod, but thats not the reason I have some tape ons.
1. Years ago metal reel seats were cold to the touch and would get really cold in the late fall months.
2. The tape forms a nice grip for your fingers.
3. You can micro adjust your reel position on the butt.(This is the big one)
4. You can build a rod alot quicker without a reel seat.
5. When I was a kid all the reel cool fisherman did it this way.
