Struble U-15 Reel Seat
The Struble U-15 is a very nice and strong reel seat. It is the same reel seat that Sage used on their SP model of fly rods. They use it on their heavier rods, starting from the 7 weights. My 8 weight XP has a thin, anodized aluminum reel seat too, and they are nice! It's fine!
