Lead Masters Reel Clamps
What do you buy when you have everything
After receiving 4 gift cards for PB and having everything I could possibly need I did spy a way to spruce up my rod and reels with these custom reel clamps. The quality is great. I did need to go out and get some washers to use with them since the ones on my Trinidads were to large for the opening

a great buy
Works great on my tiagra 16. Better than hooking a leash too the reel its self.

Not good enough
Many of you know the reel clamps for the Penn 50's and 70's lose their sprayed on finish and corrode. It is a flawed design. The annodized aluminum is the right answer. I bought 2 of these #3 clamps to try, before buying the other 6 I need. There are two problems with this product . First the screw holes are oversized, I imagine so they fit a broad range of reels. They are almost rectangular. So the likelihood of the screws loosening and the clamp slipping is high. The second problem is the eye for your lanyard snap is too small. Some snaps will fit. Mine do, but they do not go on easily and will bind. Not good.
This product is on the right track, but flawed in these 2 respects. If anyone has found something better, get the word out.

Like this product
I purchased the size #2 Gold for my Shimano Calcutta 700 and it fits perfectly. I like the design and plan to purchase 2 more to rig my other reels the same. The hook holder is my favorite feature.
