Mi,Maybe some can help me and tell me what they think of using the pacfic bay/fugi plastic reel seats for trolling rods with wire? I have seen lots of custom rods now using them instead of the heavy aftco seats. Also whats the best way to install the reel seat. I used to use pop-cicle sticks with expoxy and file the fit. I have seen some use just masking tape.How much clearance should the seat have to the rod? Thanks for the info,Davey

Thanks for your help Capt.I ordered all of the mentioned pieces. Im just using these rods for towing umbrellas,tubes and plugs. I still have to build a set of bunker spoon rods. My boat is only 19 feet,so i guess 8 footers would be the max? Do you have any rod blank specs or can you recommened a built rod/blank? I looked at the seekers/stars but Im not sure of 8 footers or 9 footers? Thanks again Capt. Davey
