    I have a saltiga 6500 and I am having some issues finding a seat that fits snug and keeps the reel in place when cranking the handle. I have tried amtak and fuji DPSH seats so far and both have too wide of a slot for the reel and the reel wobbles when I crank it. Have any of you tried the Alps seats for this reel? If so how does it fit?

    A Fuji DPS-D should work.

    I have several of these. They should work well. Let me know what size reel you are using and I will check it out.

    I think I am going to just go with a Fuji DSPM seat. It looks like this is what most of the Japanese rods are using and it fits the foot of the rod nicely.
