    Topper a 22 would be a the smallest, a 24 would be ideal.

    Doug is it the width or the length that is the problem?

    Its the width of the reel foot. Some guys have shaved the foot down and most just force them in the 22's since the plastic insert is forgiving.

    I lost a cabo 80 into the sea after it popped out of a well closed size 20 fuji reel seat. i was pissed. go for a 24 for sure. and down the road when you are stella exclusive it will fit them just fine too.
