I noticed looking around on this site that many reel seats on popping rods have the tightner or whatever you call it on the top. It would seem to me that the location would be on the bottom facing the butt section and you tighten moving up towards the reel. With it installed that way, you can bring the eva fore grip further down to the start of the reel seat. It seems that it would make more sense when grabbing line to cast, it would not have to be too high thus preventing the line slipping off the spool for a bogus cast. Make sense?
