Fenwick Elite River Runner Rod - reel seats....

I really like what Fenwick did on the reel seats of their River Runner Elite trout rods.

Does anyone manufacture reel seats similar to that? I can shape the cork myself - just need the plastic/carbon fiber parts.

It's a beautifully simple and comfortable design.

Thanks.

129 views and no response so I assume that there is nothing out there like it available to the rod builder. Maybe I just need to make one myself - or get it made....

I think the easy way would be a Fuji IPS seat and cork, shape the cork to your liking, HPS with cork and you'd in business.
Forgot about Mr.Timberlake's SBSS reel seat, it would be lighter.
