A good two grams on the scale for the cork insert.
Color me bad
I’m “downgrading” the reel seat on a Hardy Demon 7’ #3 for a friend of mine. The handle section of the rod alone tipped the scale at 62g!?!?! after removing the original reel seat, we had 24g to work with :-)
We urgently needed to get it lighter. We’re landing at about 35g now with the new reel seat, which is a bit more than I hoped for, but it’s still way better than before. Well. 11g for a reel seat is not bad now that I think about it.
What colour should the reel seat be on the rod?
EDIT: The owner picked the champagne hardware.
