For maximum strength-to-weight ratio, AFTCO Slip-Over reel seats are machined, not
stamped or rolled, from the finest marine aluminum. Where the fixed hood is fitted to the
barrel, mating surfaces are knurled, then epoxied together for extra strength in an area
where ordinary reel seats frequently fail. Finer, rounder threads produce a silky-smooth
locking action, and the husky locking rings offer a heavier knurled surface for easier turning.
Available in Silver, Hard-Coat Black and Black/Gold anodized finishes, plus anodized designer
color finishes — Gold, Silver/Gold, Green, Ice Blue,
Purple, Red and Gray — to match popular colors of metallic rod-winding threads.
