My next rod will have a split seat. I have never installed one before. Do I use tape shims or is there something better? How big of a shim do I use or how much space do I leave for epoxy? What's the best way to line both pieces so that the reel fits? I'm in the middle of another rod and the next one will be next week or so; I just want to plan in case I need to order something. Your help is appreciated.

I have a done a couple of rods with the pac bay minima seat. I dont consider myself in anyway an expert but this is how i do i. I use the fuji graphite arbors to make up the gap on the front peace of the seat the rear has fit snug so i havent had to fill any gaps. I use an old reel foot with a level attached to line the two pieces up while epoxy dries. hope this helps.
