Hardy Reel Foot swap

Recently purchased a 15ft Carron rod. Was planning on using my Cascapedia MKII 10/11 on it, but the reel foot is too large/fat to fit in the seat.
Tried a hardy perfect and Korean Uniqua in the seat and they fit great...
Looking to replace the foot on the Cascapedia.. can anyone point me in the right direction for where best to easily purchase this..?
Seems like I should be able to buy a Hardy reel foot that is thinner and has a mellower concave.. without resorting to duct tape/filing feet down/Tommy tape.

Send the reel to Bill Archuleta. Google Archuletas reel works.

Weird, I have the same reel and no issues on any of my rods. Honestly, replacing the reel seat (and rebuilding the lower handle) might even be a cheaper operation, so just something to consider. Guessing that would be in the ballpark of $50-70. Bill is awesome, but I’m guessing the total on that with the part and installation might be significantly more. But yes, he is the guy for that for sure.
