    a few pics of seats i weighed.
    most are used in builds.
    there is even a slight variance between the same seats,
    This should help guys who are concerned about a few grams in their builds.

    anyone want to see others, let me know

    Amazing how some rods will have a heavier reel seat than the blank itself!
    thanks for that info, really helpful.

    What about those new Synit Kaha's though? Sounds like both the 50 and 100 are well under the 100 gram mark?

    they show it as a spinner, but will work either way.

    Is the FUJI Trigger for Conventional shown the LIGHTEST (62 grams) you can get! Plus you can get it in just Matt Carbon Black right?
