The ALPS design team came up with this ergonomic and unique triangular reel seat design for the saltwater market years ago. They downsized this patented technology to fit fly reel seat designs. The ALPS Triangle shape keeps all the reel foot pockets precisely aligned, and it prevents the hood from spinning loose on the body. Add two custom lobed locking nuts that allow the fly angler to lock the fly reel firmly in place, and you have a seat that looks like it came from the future. The ALPS Triangle fly reel seats are available with or without a recessed front retainer.
