I'm happy to re-introduce reel seat hardware to what's on offer in addition to the ferrules I've always made. Both the reel seats and ferrules are made from the same AMS4640 nickel aluminium bronze alloy.

Currently, the reel seat hardware being made is 660 & 720 sized cap and band and sliding bands and these are both machined with the bands having an internal angle of 7 degrees.

The purpose of the 7 degree internal angle is to ensure a better fit against the reel foot.
The reel foot, if it is AFFTA compliant has a taper of 7-8 degrees and the band having the same inside taper fits snugly against this taper ensuring a superior fit to that using a band with a parallel non tapered hole which only fits well at the extreme edge where it comes into contact with the reel foot.

This is a detailed drawing of the Cap & Band reel seat and how the 7 degree internal taper works.

Soon to come are uplocking and down locking screw type reel seats as well as 660 sized Cap and Band and Sliding Band reel seat hardware.

Cap & Band hardware comes with a cap, the band and a cork check.

Sliding Bands hardware comes with a pair of sliding bands, cork check and butt cap.
