After extensive testing, American Tackle Company's super strong, super tough nylon Smooth Butt is ready for anything you throw at it. Designed with durability in mind, the butt is built for use with rod holders, which makes them a world wide favorite for trolling. The Smooth Butt can be coupled with our AG-4 or NG-2 gimbals with 1 1/4" O.D.s for a flush fit or the smaller gimbals when coupled with one of our gimbal covers. All Smooth Butts are furnished with trim rings.

Customers wanting to re-grip the rod butt due to wear and tear? This is a perfect solution without disassembling the whole rod. Not only is it easier, but it makes the rod butt tougher and easier to pull out of the rod holder.
If you don’t mind the weight, it’s great for rod holders.
I actually bought this because I needed to replace a reel seat and didn’t want to remove my foregrip and guides. I cut the rear EVA grip and aluminum seat off, slid the new seat on, and this slick but slides right on.
