Ok my first ever heaver build as well as first time pulling the components together. What size reel seat, and what size but cap do I need to order? Ordering from mud hole if that matters. Thanks all help appreciated.

I first get the blank I want. Once it comes in, I then mark off where I want the rear grips, reel seat and foregrip. Then using a set of calipers, I measure the rod at those points. So if you measure 20mm at the biggest point where the reel seat will go, then order a 22 or 25mm reel seat. You will then need to create arbors (I use masking tape) so the reel seat will fit snug. Mudhole has videos on this I think.

That rod will accept a 22mm reel seat. A small amount of masking tape will be needed to create the arbors. I just got done building 3 this winter.
