Fuji NS Type Plate Seat

I know there a lot of experienced surf fishermen and surf rod builders on this forum so I'd appreciate your thoughts. I've seen these plate type reel seats on custom surf rods and I find them very attractive. I was curious about the strength of the latching mechanism as compared to say a spinning reel seat which has a hood tightened by a "nut." Any problems with the latching mechanism releasing by a bump or during a hard cast? Thanks!

I've never had one come loose or pop open. It's a pretty good design all the way around.

Hang on for a bit and see what others have to say about their experiences with them.
