You can also mount one of these to the rod. Fuji plate Reel seat. These mount on the rod flush to the deckhand grip. They are secured via top, bottom and middle of the seat with thread or cord wrapped around the rod ( Corktape or Shrinktube) and seat. You then epoxy over the threads/cord to seal it and secure it to the deckhand grip . Works really well. If you decide to sell your rod, you can remove it.

Tiburon best bet.
I have a 800m graphiter with tuna cord handle.
Puts it at the right location for casting and fish fighting.
Thicker handle will require longer screws so be sure to check fit before you buy it.

Tiburon hands down. Strong,quick and easy to set up.. I have mine on a 900h and love it. Clamp comes with two sets of screws. Short and long.

Tiburon clamp or throw on an ALPS reel seat on your deckhand rod. LOL I'm just joking about that last part. LOL! :)

I had the Tiburon clamp on my Grafighiter and didn't like it so I paid $60.00 and had a Fuji reel seat installed and I couldn't be happier.

I agree with the plate style reel seat. That will be the most permanent and reliable but the easiest is Tib clamp.

This guy on BD sells a Tib knockoff for $20 plus $5 shipping. I have one and it's pretty good.
