By the way, I think you hard core jigging guys would like this set-up. I put the Boss 400 on a Hanta Slow Pitch Aji 67-5. It is rated for 250 gram (8 oz.) jigs and only weighs 140 grams (5 oz.) and has spiraled rod guides.
This is my first venture into quality slow pitch set-up and I'm looking forward to using it. I currently live in the Middle East and about to make a trip to Southern Oman where I'll use it but at some point I'll bring it back to Texas and use it offshore Texas for red snapper.

Accurate Boss Rod Screws
(cross-posted on the bluewater fishing forum)
I recently purchased an Accurate Boss Fury 400 narrow. When I attached the rod screws, the piece that threads over the top of the threaded stud contacts the side of the reel. See attached. I was able to get it screwed down all the way, but this doesn't seem right to me and I am sure it will (or already has) scratched the finish of the reel.
Has anybody else had this issue? Am I somehow not installing this correctly?
See pics below. The interference is circled in orange.
