Has anyone used these? I've seen similar seats on British and European surf rods, but I'm wondering how well they grip the blank. Wouldn't the reel and seat shift and rotate out of place after a few casts?
I've used the century equivalent. There's also a model made by abu for the UK/mediterranean market that seems popular. My experience with adjustable has been.... adequate... not great, but it's a solution to a problem. No where near as comfortable as a nice trigger seat properly mounted but for 9 dollars you might as well try it out. I suggest putting down a section of shrink tube wherever you intend on having it for it to grab.
