    I just moved my Talica 25II to a new custom rod built on a UC Centaur blank. the Alps seat is significantly smaller than its prior home. Problem seems to be that the Reel clamp bolt - the part that keys into the base of the reel to hold the clamp, using the reel clamp nut. the bolt now comes to the surface of the nut as I tighten, and so I cannot really snug it up with a standard flat screwdriver.

    Are there shorter reel clamp bits available???

    Thanks

    I’ll check, but after posting I found the long lost special wrench, which has a two toothed element, clearly made for bolts that belong to dolts like me. I was able to get the last turn or so to mount it tightly.
    Have a great day.
