    I am going to build a 60/80# spinning rod for my Makaira 30000. What brand and type of reel seat should I use??

    For that heavy of line I'd use an aluminum seat.

    I was actually about to ask the same question.

    Im thinking to build me a HD spinning rod for a van staal 275 with 80# braid and I was thinking to use one of those pacbay aluminum channelock spinning reelseats or maybe the HD channelock RS slim hood.

    Whatever you get, make sure your real foot fits inside the Reel seat before you build the rod. I have a Penn Battle 2 that's got such a fat foot it won't fit on a couple of rods I have. I actually had to take a file to it and make it skinnier and shorter to fit on a Daiwa rod.

    Good advice, the Shimano Thunnus has a very large reel foot also.
