Spey Reel Seats

Item Id: RS-Spey

Snake Brand has been an industry leader for over twenty-five years. Our goal has always been to be the leader in creativity, innovation, and performance. We looked at the offerings for Spey Fly Rods and found that there was room for improvement. We designed a specific new series of guides to improve the performance of Spey Rods. Our round helix and our proprietary ECO Finish are the perfect combination to increase line speed and distance. The rods' performance and casting ability are an art form, however, the reel seat inserts were rather plain. With this in mind, we developed a double-dyed burl which enhances and provides the finishing touches to your work of art.

Features

  • Stabilized
  • UV inhibitors
  • Removable butt cap for optional fighting butt
  • Proprietary finish that is super hard that is near impossible to dent
  • Diameter is larger than typical reel seat, so it's stronger and shows more detail grain of the wood
  • Specifically designed for spey/switch rods
  • It's only the top 3-4% of wood is used in these seats

Here's what the experts are saying about Snake Brand Guides
"Over years, I have supplied literally millions of snake guides and tops to fly rod manufacturers around the globe. I must say that Snake Brand guides and tip tops are the most perfect that I have ever come across. From the stamping of the radius on the guide feet, to the fact they sit flat and straight on the rod blank. Consistent in every way and very user friendly."

The perfect compliment to our reel seat designs are our wood inserts.

Flamed Redwood
This is an amazing wood, it yields reddish brown tones with dark eyes. I first saw this wood in custom knife handles and I knew that I must find this wood to offer it to our valued customers. I later found the Flamed Redwood, it has rich warm tones coupled with the beautiful golden banding that picks up light in every direction is truly unique.

When I look at the first rod that I built my only regret is that I wished someone could have offered me wood of this quality.
