The deluxe ALPS B101 reel seat is the finest fly reel seat from Batson Enterprises in both appearance and materials for a light to medium weight fly rod. The nickel silver plated brass skeleton is finely machined and features decorative beads around both retainers and 2 knurled rings around the fine thread locking nut. The skeleton parts also include a matching end cap. The wood body insert is available in rosewood burl or tiger maple in a satin finish of 2-part waterproof varnish. The seat, after assembly, measures 3.72" (94.7 mm) long, the front pocket has a 0.813" outside diameter and the insert has an inside diameter of 0.420" (10.66 mm).

Excellent Real Seat

Reviewer: A viewer from GAUTENG, SOUTH AFRICA ZA

I got the B101 skeleton kits, as I mostly turn my own wood spacers. It is superbly finished and I was really impressed with the quality. At this price, it's real good value for money. I have subsequently ordered more, but this time taken some of the burl rosewood inserts as well.
If you are considering a reel seat like the Struble U-20, but don't want to spend too much, this is most definitely a great option.
I like the double knurling on the fastening nut...Something different and makes the rod built a little more unique. The threads on the barrel are pretty fine thread, which is great.

nicely machined skeleton

Reviewer: A viewer from Shirley, NY US

Nice economy (skeleton) slightly more detail than the similar BUL5. Nice for 4-6 wt rods. I have not seen the inserts as I turn my own.
