I just found a really nice 4” Perfect from the 1920’s, but when I went to put it on my 7134 Burkie, the reel foot was too long to fit the seat. Same was true for my 8wt Method spey rod and even my NRX 8-9wt spey. Bummed out. Can anyone educate me on this? What do others do if they want to spey fish with an old school Perfect? I don’t want to cut down the foot. Thanks for any insight you can give me.
