10 wt reel seat

Hello everyone, I am looking to build a 10 wt fly rod for use on the flats for permit and light tarpon. I am wanting a black seat with a blue woven graphite insert similar to the seat on the NRX line. Does anyone have any recommendations? I will be putting a Tibor Riptide on it.
Thanks for any help.

It doesn't quite work that easily. You have to have the correct size to go into the hood of the seat, and then enough wall thickness to be able to turn down to the threaded barrel ID

it is a salt water rod the size of the seat is larger than a fresh water seat and you should be able to buy match the tube to the skeleton seat easy enough and have enough wall thickness to fit the parts together and you know as well as I do there will be arbors underneath the seat and tube parts no need to make a big technical process out of if when it isn't necessary.

The size of the seat for a 10wt is not different for a freshwater rod than it is for a saltwater rod.

Thank you all for the discussion. Would the RA8L2 fit a 10 wt reel?
