I cannot speak for everyone but I asked a few friends who used black tape to hold the reel, said the following:

The reel seat is expensive, hard to put on when you omit some materials for the handle, it makes the rod heavier, and the seat is ugly.

Dont buy combo rod and reel until you know what you are getting. Most of the time the reel is cheap with less than 3 ball bearings or the rod is fiberglass or E-glass, the latter is heavy and hard to detect fish strikes.
