Basically any reel that falls into the same size as the reels mentioned above will fit on our 22 mm aluminum reel seat.
When I designed Sceptre Carbon Series Fishing Rods I took into account the many design flaws that I found to underperform when fishing offshore. One of these flaws are reel seats that tighten from the butt up towards the rod tip. This type of reel seat alignment is not only impractical due to the reel coming loose and getting lost overboard, but such alignment can also cause injury if the reel comes off the reel seat while running offshore. Personally I found that the composite reel seats eventually loose their threads, as well as deform when exposed to the elements. Our machined aluminum reel seats will not deform or come loose.
This rod is manufactured with Batson XBXNLG 316 Stainless Steel Hard Aluminum Oxide Guides.
We use the EVA Foam light weight butts to provide for a lighter overall rod weight. This rod also features an aluminum gimbal.
Lure / Hook Keeper:
All our Sceptre Carbon Series Rods feature a lure / hook keeper built into the rod. The keeper allows you to attach your hook or lure to the rod instead of one of the guides, fore grip, or butt, eliminating damage to the eva foam sections of the rod, as well as guide damage. The lure keep also avoids the need of having to wrap the leader around the reel. The built in hook keeper allows for faster deployment of your bait or lure.
Our Sceptre Utlimate Live Bait rods are built on super strong light weight double helix graphite composite blanks manufactured in the USA by United Composites in Huntington Beach California. UC blanks are strong, yet light weight and suitable for rigors of tournament fishing.
If you fish SKA/FLW, or other tournaments, our Sceptre Carbon Rods are the perfect choice. Please feel free to call or email me if you have any questions regarding our Sceptre Carbon Fishing Rods. We can customize this rod to your specifications.
