Just purchased a TRC, I want to use a sliding reel seat with coaster, trouble is I Can,t find one to fit ! 28mm is too big and 26 won,t go over the small bulge at the bottom of the butt. Don,t realy want to use coasters on this rod, so any of you lads got any other ideas on how to secure the reel (Slosh 30) to the rod ?? A

A 26 fuji will fit, the trouble is the crap x wrap shrink tube, it's quite thick. If you get a piece of dowel and some sandpaper you can take off the ridges inside the fitting. Also put the reel seat in hot water so it expands. A tiny bit of washing liquid as a lube and it should slide on fairly easily. I have a 26mm on mine and it's perfect. You can even get a 26mm on an m427 without any shrinkwrap
