Introduced in 2013, the ALPS TexTouch graphite trigger casting reel seat has proven itself to be a hot product and a must buy for anglers looking for a durable seat with a high tech appearance. The trend setting TexTouch casting graphite reel seat, another first from ALPS, highlights some of the best features. CNC machined 6061-T6 double locking nuts and a double keyed body hold that reel in place and eliminate hood spin. The one and only TexTouch sets the bar with three cutouts for maximum blank exposure.
