    Default castaway exposed blank reel seat

    Hello: I was given 5 castaway exposed blank reel seats, they are 14MM, 14.5MM & 15MM which I had no idea what that was when they were given to me, so I would like to be able to use them, but the bass rods I build are way too small for that size. Is there any way that these can be made useful or do I need to find someone that needs them that big to give them to? The blank would be exposed almost the full length of the reel seat.

    thanks
    for the ideas and help

    Terry,

    The only thing that I can come up with on these is to build onto the blank they are intended for. You could maybe talk to Lance at Swampland and see if he has any more ideas what to do with them. I have seen people cut the middle bit out and turn it a two piece reel seat which you could then shim but not really a fan.

    Sorry I'm not more help,
    Eric
