    Default Reel Seat Sizes

    Hi Guys,

    First time rod builder here, and I couldn't find a clear answer on finding the reel seat ID size for your rod. Is this something that should be measure when you receive a blank, or do manufactures have these sizes listed on a blueprint of some sort? I can only find guides on guide spacing on a blank, nothing about diameter.

    Thanks,
    Peter

    Mfgs will have the reel seat specs listed. If you have a look in the Batson catalog at http://www.batsonenterprises.com/Catalogs/2017Catalog/ you can see that they list ID, length, and OD in mm and inches.

    You can wait to order your reel seat once you have the blank and pull the measurement from the largest diameter where your reel seat will sit. Once you become more experienced and familiar with the reel seats that you like, you can order everything at once.

    You can give Utmost a call and I'm sure they will be able to get you what you need in a timely manner.

    Regards,
    Eric
