Reel seats help set the “tone” for the look of the fly rod. Light trout rods are often built with slim seats featuring hardwood inserts. For heavier rods, all-aluminum seats are more popular. We have a wide selection of models in various finishes and colors for all applications including seats for two-hand rods. We lean towards a “less is more” style in our selection and there are not a lot of frilly, decorative models here.
RFT fly reel seats are only available on RFTGear. They are clean, stylish and functional. The triangle-tube design is machined in aircraft-grade aluminum and hard anodized in a black “stealth” matte. We’ve also produced some special RT seats to match the blanks we offer. RT seats have an attractive, bright gunsmoke finish and are available with hardwood insert or in all aluminum. All of these fly reel seats are simple, clean, stylish and functional.
ATC has a few clean aluminum seats with both single and double-locking rings. We’ve chosen four models in bright and black finishes.
Finally, only RFTGear has an exclusive, limited supply of the highest quality Epic fly reel seats in gloss black and titanium.
