We built the RFT handle kit around a never-fail, guide-grade, functional seat that securely fastens the reel to the rod. No knurls, burls, flash or frills here. The tolerances between the sleeve and the triangle cylinder are tight and create a smooth, stable feel. The double locking rings include a rubber gasket and do not loosen under use. We naturally rounded it out in a stealth, matte-black finish. This is not decoration for the rod, but rather a tool that makes it work better.
Choose a grip in either full wells (FW) or half wells (HW) configuration. RFT grips are milled in AAAA cork and trimmed in high-density corkmix. The hood perfectly covers the seat port and the overall look and feel is tight and right.
