The American Tackle Aluminum Butt has been a staple in the big game fishing scene since their introduction. These Aluminum butts are swaged with reel seats machined from marine grade aluminum for strength and durability. American Tackle provides all aluminum butts with second to none anodizing to prevent corrosion and resist scratching. Locking nuts are reverse knurled to prevent scratching when transporting or storing. This handle kits comes with the short length version of the Aluminum butt which is an excellent option for those who fight mainly in a harness and stand-up gear but provide a good option for both stand-up and chair anglers.

To match the butt sizing, the size #1 fits 10lb-30lb Class Rods and the Size #2 fits 30lb-50lb class rods. Once you choose between a size #1 or size #2 depending on the class of rod you will be building, we give three foregrip options.

Installation & How-To

Note: Handle kits do not include arbors. You can purchase one separately, or build one yourself using tape. Also, as blank diameters change, you may need to ream the inner diameter of the grips to match the blank. In instances where the blank diameter is small, you might need to create an arbor to fit the grip snug to the blank.
