Chet from Bellinger was kind enough to donate a handful of seats for the FTOTY rod this year. In addition to us being privy to some beautiful seats to choose from, Bellinger is rolling out a new line of seat hardware, and we are the first to get to see them! headbang.gif

The first two seats are the new .690 series, which is right in between their .660 and .720 in size and feature a very clean hardware shape and the double trim bands on the cap and the knurling and shape of the sliding band are extremely classy looking.

They aren't up on their website yet, but give the guys at Bellingers a call and I think you'll be very pleased with the pricing. thumbsup.gif

Here is another photo of a .690 seat with blued hardware take by Chet's photo miestro as my pics are less than ideal:

I voted for the third one, I think the lighter BE burl will match the rod better.

I really like the look of the Amboyna burl (blued) seat...however, for this rod the elder is the best choice.

“If you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you'll spend your life completely wasting your time. You'll be doing things you don't like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing things you don't like doing, which is stupid. Better to have a short life, doing what you like doing, than a long life spent in a miserable way." - Alan Watts
