Protecting your butt

Post by Southshore » Thu Feb 14, 2019 2:28 pm

With lighter rods that don't come with a fighting butt, I was always concerned about damaging the reel thread when resting the rod on the ground until I came across a simple solution, a rubber chair foot protector from a hardware store. They usually come in black or white and the white ones can be coloured or decorated with a waterproof marker, and, they fit over the bottom of the butt lifting the reel higher away from the sand.
