Beautiful reel seat
Reviewer: A viewer from Fort Collins, CO US
I purchased this seat for a 9' 4 wt. I am building for my wife. The trout etching is gorgeous and this thing is super light! I will definitely be purchasing another for one of my own builds!

I ordered this reel seat in shiny gunsmoke/light wood. I was worried that the wood would be too light, but it isn't. It's a very nice caramel color. This really gives my rods a custom-turned look.
makes the rod look great...

I bought the Gunsmoe/Black YFLY reel seat to go with a Rainforest 10'8" 5wt switch rod and it looks awesome...It comes preassembled minus the end cap...It fits the rod and grips great and looks awesome to go with it...I like the 2 locking nuts with the rubber lock rings...They hold the reel nicely.
YFLY reel seat
Reviewer: A viewer from Portland, CT US
I recently purchased one of the YFLY reel seats and installed on another custom rod project. The lines and unique construction allowed for easy assembly of the rod and aligment of the guides. It seems lighter in weight than the traditional wood reel seats and looks great. Nice product, will use it again.
Classy Looking Fly Rods
Reviewer: A viewer from Longview, TX US
If you want a one of a kind fly rod these reel seats help create an eye catching product that you will really be pleased with. I own a small Rod Building business and I have received more positive comments using these reels seats and the matching cork grip than I have for any of the other rods I have built over the last four to five years. Even other rod builders, who are careful with their praise, have mentioned how good they look.
