ALPS Split casting/spinning design is deeply rooted off the wildly successful TexTouch casting graphite reel seat, but with the added split design. ALPS innovation with this Split Casting/Spinning reel seat standardizes some of the best features. CNC machined 6061-T6 double locking nuts and a double keyed aluminum barrel will insure your reel stays put and eliminate all hood spin. There isn’t a better way to build a rod when keeping the weight down is of utmost importance. Look to include this on your next lightweight rod. Order your barrel choice, hood choice, and body choice for your build.
