I just got the pacific bay a7v-wheel seat. And am having a problem. Here is my email to the
Company trying to solve it. I'll take any ideas.
I tried just to fit the largest end of the blank into the bottom of the reel seat just to test it because it will have to fit through the hole with the o-ring without filing.
I can not get the blank end onto the reel seat. i could file the inside of the seat but even to get it all the way on the rod i would have to file the opening where the plug is where the o-ring is. I feel that if i file the end hole with o-ring, then the end cap will no longer be able to stay in the real seat because the hole will be much larger. There is also threads on the inside, i'm thinking it is for the fighting butt is to be screwed into.
I am feeling that i will be putting the seat on from the top of the seat to very bottom of the butt end section of the rod. I mean that i will be feeding the blank in to the top of the real seat. then adding the drywall tape to balance it out.
