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.
