To prevent your pole sliding forwards, most anglers attach either a pole sock or tulip flexing grip to their seatbox, but the Reaper combines the best of both. The Reaper features two pole socks and the clever design means that there is a tulip type grip in between them, so effectively you have a retainer that will hold three separate sections of pole. The frame is strong and durable, as are the socks themselves, and there is plenty of EVA foam protection around the edge to prevent any chance of damage to delicate pole sections. The thick mesh used for the sock also provides plenty of protection for pole sections. The socks are large enough that even the largest pole sections are easily located within them, without having to pay too much attention whilst un-shipping as you play a fish. The pole sock will hold anything from a single number four section, right the way down to a 16m butt section. The Reaper pole sock is easily attached to seat box accessory arms or bank sticks, via a universal metal screw thread.
