    Does anybody know who makes the reel seats for the TFO BVK rods? I have seen several seats that are similar in style...one being on the Helios. Any ideas?

    They look like an ALPS product to me.

    There are lots of nice reel seats that unfortunately aren't available for public purchase. I'd love to find where to find the large knurled gun-metal seats from some of the higher end st. Croix rods. That being said, there are a lot of nice newer options with the cut-away style, etc.

    I agree, there are several nice styles out there, but its a bit like taste in rods, you either love em or hate em. I happen to be a huge fan of Bellinger when I want a clasic look, they look nicer than struble, at least to me. And for salt, I like the Strubles. What I am having a hard time finding is a "new" super Hi-tec ultra light seat that I like......as in Helios or BVK. They both scream "I am the lightest thing out there" Which is important to some people.
