What is the recommended method for mounting your reel to a rod with no reel seat?

You could try electric tape or radiator clamps

If it is a spinner I would get a Fuji LS-7 plate reel seat and tape it on.

If it is a conventional the plate seat is still an option or you could reach out to Tommy Farmer the Distance Casting board sponsor for a pair of coasters. He would need to know the diameter of the rod butt, they come in different sizes.

I tape on a plate seat then attach the real to the seat and tape the reel on - all with 3M electrical tape.
