Eventually the plan is to become a Rodsmith and make the majority of the components in-house. Along with the reel seats, the hope is to include machining the Nickel Silver ferrules for the Bamboo rods and making my own snake guides. The guides will have the old school look and will not be chrome plated.
Below are a couple of the seats and inserts that have come out of the shop. The top seat is Aluminum with a Sycamore insert. The bottom seat is Nickel Silver with a stablized Maple Burl insert.
