Re: EVA real seat hood

Be sure to use your reel to determine exactly how many threads to cut from the seat and the needed length of the KDPS when complete. That's usually 1/4 to 3/8" of threads to be trimmed off. Careful though, you can't add it back after you have cut it off......don't ask how I know..... :oops: I ...

Re: Moisture build up in guides

Re: New Fuji Reel Foregrip!

part of my normal build is to eliminate as much exposed thread as possible. This means cutting down the threads and gluing the thread portion of the seat correctly to where the hood is fully tightened with the reel that i intend to mount on my rod.

I'm a former golf pro and I have installed quite a few grips. They hold fine with the tape, but your club grips stay in your bag out of the sun. If you leave a club out in the hot 100 degree plus heat in my area, the tape can slip. My rods get really hot when I leave them on the light tan carpeted ...
