    i purchased a calstar 270 jig stick with a cork handle with no reel seat what is the best way to attach the reel other than using hose clamps:fighting0061::hali_ruahahaha:

    For a jigmaster I like to use a Newell base and a std Newell clamp. No hose clamps. I've never had one move.

    I would not call a 270 a jigstick, its a good baitstick.

    Use the reel clamp, if you dont have one you can usually get one for the reel pretty easy.

    If it's not supplied with the reel then:
    Penn, accurate, strike master, backbone all make after market reel clamps.

    *A calstar 270 for jigs?? A 270 is a bait rod and too light for jigs unless you thinking a 270h which is a good #25 bait and jig rod.

    J R Jones CorkPuppy. Try one of these clamps. More gripping surface and look pretty cool also. The website doesn't show the CorkPuppy but they have 'em. Comes in 25,28 and 31mm. Looks like just a half of the reel seat pictured.

    My vote is with the JR Jones Cork puppy. It keeps the reel real stable on the rod and its metal.

    I think the Cork Puppies are a very well thought out design, and look pretty good too. However, the MSRP on those things is outrageous! $34.95 for something that costs $5 or $6 bucks tops to make. They should retail for around $17.95 with the standard markups going through the food chain. If they dropped the price they will make up the difference, plus in volume IMHO. I won't buy one unless they do. There are several other after market products that work just as well that are far more reasonably priced.

    A cork puppy would work just fine and looks great too.

    Don't forget to get your pole Shrink wrapped prior to clamping. Will protect the cork area long term were you would usually tighten clamps. Doesn't have to be real long only about 6 to 8 inches. Will help with re-sell value when you get tired of it also.
