I have an inshore rod with the HCC seat and it is a thing of beauty! They are lightweight and very well designed. While I don't know what a "Perfect" reel seat would be, I believe the HCC seat is either it, or at least very close!

I was lucky enough to get one a while back and just placed an order for more! These are by far my favorite reel seats ever!

I just saw a post by HFF Custom Rods on FB with the HCC reel seat. They look amazing! Looks like they had a good stock of them as well.

Was able to get one very early and built a rod just recently Those who pick up this rod can't believe how light the entire build is with GS2 grips and the AT carbon reel. Very comfortable. Will look to use again for sure.
