Product Details

The CRB WFS Fly Seat comes fully assembled – no need to glue the insert – and includes machined aluminum hardware built for reel security, durability, and corrosion resistance. With an up-locking configuration that pairs a knurled locking nut and a reliable delrin o-ring, this fly reel seat is engineered to guarantee maximum security and control over the reel foot. Plus, it features a recessed hood to match up perfectly with CRB's super grade half-wells fly grip!

Ideal for 0-5 wt. fly rods, the WFS Reel Seat comes in either a titanium or a gloss black finish, with your choice of 5 exotic hardwood inserts: Yellow Pine, Pinkwood, Rosewood, Maple Burl, and Burl Rosewood.

Rich Lussier ( (Philadelphia, PA, US)

I was asked to assemble a long single handed rod for use in a canoe. I had access to an 11ft 4wt blank and a reverse half wells cork grip with cutout. The reel seat inner ID was ideal as it did not require reaming and very little filler. It looks good in place and provides the needed function. I would purchase again if I require a similar seat.

Efficiency & Quality

Set off the rod, very distinctive, quality at a good price! Thanks Mud Hole

Cheap feel, but seems to work ok.

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.

Reel seat review

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.
