Hi Guys, about to build first casing rod for my sons birthday. Have chosen to use fuji ACS reel seat and would like to get some advice before I commit to ordering parts.Think fuji calls these seats cored so they don't require arbors, please correct me if I am wrong.
Where the reel seat will sit the measurements are
Towards butt 10.95mm
Middle of seat 10.40mm
Towards tip 10.40mm
What size should I order? Was thinking a 16 x10. 50mm.
Also do you put epoxy on the area where seat sits and just slide on as normal and clean exposed blank area? Any install tips very welcomed.
Thanks Scott.

You got It! Very easy seat to install. If it doesn’t go all the way down, you can ream slightly from the rear to get a good snug fit.

Thanks Norm, are paste epoxies OK to use or are you better with something that is a bit more fluid or runny?
Cheers Scott.

Paste epoxy will work fine and will help fill the ridges in the reel seat for a good bond.

I clean the exposed blank area with a paper towel, tan one with DNA, than catch the fine edge where the reel seat meats the bare blank with a DNA soaked Q tip, otherwise I seem to always have a fine line of epoxy there.
