The new V5 foot (12) is pre-shaped to fit most rod reel seats and can be used as-is (after you remove any sharp edges with sandpaper).

Test fit the foot on your rod and re-shape it with 320 grit sandpaper if needed. Typically, this involves thinning down both ends of the foot.

PREP NOTE: If you'd like a polished foot as shown in the second photo, simply sand off the machining ridges with 320 grit sandpaper. Then sand with 600 grit sandpaper and finish with the included polish.

The foot attaches to the frame assembly with two 4-40 binding head screws (14) and two short foot pillars (13) as shown in the photographs.
