    Im getting a custom rod built, Calstar 800H for my Accurate 870 2 speed. Can I use the reel clamp that came with the Accurate or is there a better aftermarket one? I know Accurate is making a Pitbull reel clamp for deck hand rods but wont be available until next year.

    the cork puppys spread out the stress on the cork tape rod handle (no reel seat) so as not to damage it and also not need to use shrink tubing.
