Wood Spacers

Available Wood Species

REC offers an extensive selection of hardwood spacers which are hand- crafted and inspected for precise metal to wood fit and finish.  In general, REC spacers are given several coats of a natural oil finish which ensures that the wood is protected from the elements beyond a mere surface finish.  This finishing method allows the spacer to be touched up to the original luster after extended use.  Note that most REC reel seat spacers come standard with a mortised slot.  Our hardwood is hand selected for consistent color, exceptional grain, and beautiful figure.  Our impregnated woods are custom produced to REC's specification for color, strength, and density.  Exotic and impregnated woods are hand buffed using natural oils only.  Select burl and stabilized burl woods are available in many species and shades.

Cork Products

Grips & Rings

REC imports only the finest grades of cork direct from Portugual.  The "Flor" grade represents the highest quality and "Super" is exceptional by any standard.  REC hand turns its grips to obtain an extremely smooth finish.  Grips may be ordered in either our standard "Super" or "Flor" grade as an option.  Our broad range of styles and lengths offers a grip choice to meet every angling need.  As a service to our customers, REC manufactures grips for all of our uplocking reel seats with the appropriate milled cork rings attached. REC also offers individual rings, including the pre-milled rings, for those who wish to turn their own grips.

Cork Grips & Rings


     Whether made from traditional 18% nickel silver or high strength anodized aluminum alloy, our exquisite fittings are recognized by rod builders world wide for their consistent quality and fine detail. From the delicately applied trim lines and fine knurls to the precise joining of all pieces, these beautifully proportioned components will enhance the appearance of any rod.  Hand buffed to a mirror-like brilliance, our selection of rod fittings resembles fine jewelry. 
     REC introduces a revolutionary new material for rod guides. RECOIL GUIDES
(US PATENT #6,612,065) are made from a special nickel titanium alloy with unique physical properties which provide exciting new possibilities for rod designers worldwide. Until now, rod guides have been plated or have used ceramic inserts to provide wear resistance. RECOIL guides are made from an extremely hard but flexible "Shape Memory" alloy, which does not require plating, cannot corrode in any environment, and returns to its original shape after repeated deformations.
     RECOIL guides are marketed exclusively by REC Components and designed in partnership with Ultimate NiTi Technologies, Inc, the exclusive manufacturer. For more information concerning the physical attributes and advantages of shape memory products, contact Ultimate NiTi Technologies, Bristol, CT.
