    Trying to fit some of my Torques on a older seeker rod that’s a little fat. Anyone know where I can find longer reel clamp screws?

    Same issue for me on my fathoms, picked up some screws that worked at Ace Hardware, not the same head, but a pan head will work the same, just tighten down the nut really well to keep it in place.

    I did the same may have to file it so it doesn’t rub on the spool.

    Thanks guys for tip will check out Ace. Does Penn have a longer screw available in this format? Or is there maybe another reel clamp available for situations like these, maybe a cork puppy or Tiburon clamp?

    If you want the Penn part, it’s 34-200.

    Awesome, do you happen to know how much longer it is from the stock one?

    Found an image in case anyone else was wondering.

    Not sure off the top of my head, but they are long enough to mount a Torque onto a fat butted Ulua.

    If you want the head to fit in the reel seat slot you will need to grind the sides of the head.

    I had to buy longer ones and then file one of the heads flat. Do a search on one of my threads. I might have extras.

    Are you saying even with this Penn screw I need to grind the sides of the head to fit the Torques?

    Any aftermarket screws will need to be grounded. Penn does not offer a longer screw.

    I did not have to grind anything and these screws fit on both my star and lever drag Torques.

    These are Penn screws. They fit a 349 or 209, or something like that. They do not have the flattened side but it has not been an issue for me to get them to fit.

    I would be concerned that the line may get caught on the screws when casting.

    It’s not an issue. If I get time, I’ll try to pull a spool and take a picture of the screw heads sitting on the base.

    1/4-20 threads on AVET.

    Penn uses the T-Slot for studs. A panhead or carriage bolt should work.
