1. CRB Graphite Casting Seat—GEC2

The GEC2 casting seat meshes a smooth, modern exposed design with a classic casting trigger for an updated reel seat option that brings the best of both worlds. Dedicated to anglers who use low profile reels, these GEC2 seats feature the ideal hand support, but also provide maximum contact with the blank.

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: We recommend the BGKS16 to fit the hidden thread hood

2. CRB Graphite Casting Seat—GEC3

The GEC3 casting seat still incorporates the traditional casting trigger, but then adds an ergonomic finger groove behind the trigger for a subtle yet strategic boost in support.

Getting premium quality without the dreaded premium price, this CRB GEC3 seat is designed for low profile reels and features proven hand support as well as maximum contact with the blank.

This size 16 seat comes in two hood designs: the trusty traditional locking hood and the hidden thread hood that gives an extra custom look to your handle. Plus with the dual channel locking hood system, this GEC3 seat provides excellent reel security in a sleek, efficient design scheme.

TIP: We recommend the BGKS16 to fit the hidden thread hood

3. CRB Nub Trigger Casting Seat—NTR

The NTR casting reel seat is perfect option for angler’s looking to ditch the traditional trigger without losing any control or feel in the rod. This NTR seat was designed to provide the caster a secure and comfortable grip, while removing the restrictive trigger found on most casting seats.

A true custom reel seat option, the NTR is ideal for right and left-handed anglers alike because it features enhanced sensitivity from the exposed cutout yet maintains superior stability with its double finger grooves.

Plus, the NTR seat is available in size 16 with cool options for hood colors like Black, Silver and Gunsmoke!

4. CRB Exposed Spinning Reel Seat—EXS

The EXS spinning seat blends its ergonomic shape with an exposed design for maximum feel in a strong and attractive reel seat option.

With features like the palm swell and the rear-tapered design combined, the EXS seat creates a smooth transition between seat and grip to ease hand fatigue while tactically increasing control.

These seats are available in size 16 and includes choices for hood color such as Black, Silver and Gunsmoke.

5. CRB Ergonomic Palm Swell Spinning Reel Seat—PFS

The PFS spinning seat was designed with efficiency and comfort in mind.

Available in Black or Silver hood options, the ERGO also comes in sizes 16, 18 and 20.

7. CRB Skeleton Spinning Seat—SXO

Add Carbon Fiber Reel Seat Inserts
