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'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
