    I want to replace the fighting butt with a bottom grip on my scott sas 10' 7wt. Actually I want someone else to do this. Hopefully close to Olympia.
    So any of you talented gents want to take a crack at it?? And what will it all cost, services and materials.

    this link is for the same thing done to the same reel seat but far far away.

    soak it in hot water to get the old one off. Then extend it and buy a lower handle and re glue it. Done and done could be done while watching the super bowl.
