AFTCO rod parts and our reel seats are the perfect fit for custom fishing rod building. Like all of our saltwater fishing rod parts, the slip-over reel seats are rugged, lightweight and machined from the finest marine aluminum. For maximum strength-to-weight ratio, AFTCO Slip-Over reel seats are machined, not stamped or rolled. Custom fishing rod builders have trusted AFTCO and our saltwater fishing rod parts since 1958.
AFTCO is all about both making quality saltwater fishing tackle, and taking care of the resource. Here Peggie Shedd releases the 1,000,000 white seabass at the Hubbs hatchery. The fish was named "Milty" after her husband Milt Shedd, father of the Hubbs/SeaWorld white seabass hatchery program.
