All-New Reel Seats from Custom Rod Builder

Whether it's adding a comfort finish, designing slimmer models, or introducing skeleton and exposed seat options, these premium reel seats bring serious performance benefits without breaking the rod building bank.

CRB's New Casting Reel Seats

Featuring expertly crafted casting designs, these new reel seats embody the look and feel of true custom rod building to fit any angler's grip preferences and performance demands.

The GEC2 Graphite Casting Seat

The GEC2 casting seat creates a smooth, modern exposed design with a classic casting trigger for an updated reel seat option that brings the best of both worlds. Dedicated to anglers who use low profile reels, these GEC2 seats feature the ideal hand support, but also provide maximum contact with the blank.

The GEC2's dual channel locking hood system provides a secure connection over the reel foot and an efficient design to enhance any casting handle assembly. Available in the traditional locking hood or the hidden thread hood, this GEC2 reel seat comes in a size 16.

TIP: Look to the BGKS16 grip to fit the hidden thread hood

The GEC3 Graphite Casting Seat

The GEC3 casting seat maintains the traditional casting trigger, but then features an ergonomic finger groove behind the trigger for a subtle yet strategic boost in support.

CRB Real Seat

Getting premium quality without the dreaded premium price, this CRB GEC3 seat is designed for low profile reels and features proven hand support as well as maximum contact with the blank.
