The rod blank also comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

FUJI® ECSM Graphite Blank-Exposed Reel Seat
Enhanced Strike Sensitivity

The ECSM reel seat is more than just another exposed blank seat. Importantly, each reel seat has a blank exposed area so that your finger comes in direct contact with the blank for maximum sensitivity; but the design also allows for great stability and comfort. More than 20% lighter than FUJI's other lightweight casting reel seats, it has a 7.9 degree offset, which reduces fatigue and provides for greater comfort when palming a reel. As with other FUJI reel seats, it sports a lock tight nut system and exclusive S4™ stainless steel cushioned hoods.


  • Black Hood
  • Perfectly sized to fit your rod blank
  • Arbor free to maximize vibration from soft pick-ups
