Tried reel seats and i found them to fat in the hand, i used to use coasters but found they can break after a while but never had them slip .
I now use the penn talons instead, They are designed to replace conventional coasters. This simple device slides onto the blank and by tightening the thumbscrew the 2 stainless steel wires grip the blank. Unlike conventional reel seats the Talon allows the blank to flex to generate maximum power.

Suitable for rod blanks 21mm - 28mm diameter.

- Stainless steel components
- Removable Trigger
- Fits most common butt diameters
- Easy to reposition on the rod
- Lightweight

only downside is the price....

I would be a bit carefull with the thumbscrew and not overdo it when tightening it up, due to most rod blanks only having thin walls, incase you crack the rod.
Other than that they look quite good, and might be tempted to have a close look at one myself :-/
