I just installed this on a CRB color series 9' 3wt fly rod. The wood insert is nice, but the metal seems a bit cheap to me. The threads don't go all the way to the end, and the lock ring actually falls off the threads and is only held on by the butt cap. I think it'll do, but honestly, I probably wouldn't buy this one again.
The product looks great at first glance but upon closer inspection it ends up being pretty cheap looking. It is functional and works as advertised but their are better products out there.
Purchased this reel seat for an 8wt salmon rod, the wood was a nice touch. The hardware tho thin seeming, is solid.
These seats look great and are reasonably priced, but the last two of them that I've purchased have fallen apart. The threaded part that locks the reel comes unglued from the burl, leaving you with a useless rod. Nice, but I'll spend the big bucks next time.

These seats have a fit and finish above their price point. The burled inserts I ordered were beautiful and fit snugly into the seat. These seat hoods also fit nicely into Grip RHW70-250. I'll be buying more of both.
Santino, thank you for the feedback and we are glad you love your CRB reel seat!
