I have not used one, but the pictures certainly indicate that it could be an excellent seat to use for specific applications.

Be safe

The original design for that idea came from a company called outdoor grips. They have been popular with musky guys for a few years now. Typically i have seen the stand alone version placed on the foregrip. I have no experience with the actual reel seat but the original version was outstanding for retrieving big baits whether it was big hard pulling bucktails being burned in or rip/pause retrieve with big rubber baits. It took quite a bit of stress off the forearm and wrist. Some guys loved them, some guys don't care for them. It's a personal preference thing but definitely worth trying if you feel the need for it.

Thanks everyone for your response. I guess I will just have to buy one and see how I like it.
