I'm building a new rod and need to establish which realseat size I can use but do not have the reel yet. I've tried searching the internet but cannot find this info.

Could anybody with an Okuma Makaira 16 measure the distance between the clamping bolts?

About 1 3/4". There's a little wiggle room, but the clamp holes are this measurement o/c.  Greg

Islandgypsy,

Thankls a lot, that should be plenty even for a sturdy reelseat like a heavy duty 28 size. Is that Center to center or just between the holes? Not sure what O/C means

Not that it matters much because with this size I should be able to pick just any size I want to. I have a makaira 30 and 50 here but didn't know how much smaller a 16 is

edit changed typo MAK 16 i.s.o. mak 15

That would be "on center"..the two clamp holes are centered over the two clamp bolts 1 3/4". The distance between the clamp bolts as installed (what would go over your reel seat) is about 1 3/8". Hope this helps..good luck with you rod build..Greg

Reinaard, this info applies to a Mak 16 sea, which I have , as in your first post. Your second post refers to a Mak 15, which I don't own...don't know about those.  -Greg

Thanks, I meant Mak 16.

I consider a MAK 15T too but these are not yet available
