I'm building a 4 at epic glass rod and am looking at a doe locking reel seat. I have a down locking on my 3wt gray wolf built rod and think it looks pretty snazzy. Is it harder to install a down locking seat on a blank? Or do you just install it like normal and then push the cork grip up against it when installing? Wouldn't that leave a possible space between the seat and the grip?

No, there is a finish ring that makes the transistion between the cork and seat
