The exposed blank seats are sold with different inside diameters to fit the blank at the point you have decided where you intend to install it. If you want to have a 10" rear grip behind the reel seat then measure the blank's diameter at that point. The seats are usually sized in .5 mm increments. Measure your blank, compare it to the sizes listed and get the one that is on the smaller side of your measurement if it falls between any two sizes. If when you try it on your blank and slides down short of your intended point, you will have to ream it a little at a time until it slides down to where you want it. You don't want it so tight that you have to force it into that spot. A just snug fit is correct. Apply gel type of adhesive to blank and slide it into place. You will have to clean up the spot where the blank is exposed-using at first a dry cloth and then one slightly damp with alcohol.
