those spincast rigs are what i'm looking at putting together. do you have to make up your own butt or can they be purchased? also what poundage is everyone shooting. with 54# that mega heavy fibreglass arrow comes out real sloooow. i found i have to use my 69# to get that thing going.

You can buy reel seats for spincasts. There's one kind that mounts up high in the sight/quiver bushings, and there's type that uses the stabilizer hole.

Look at the Great Northern Quiver site and in "other stuff" look for the Traditional Gadget adapter. I have some but have not tried them yet, but they look like a good way to attach a spinning reel without damaging your bow.
do yourself a big favor and go with an AMS reel. You will not regret it. If you use a closed face reel, its not a matter of if, but when you will forget to push the cast button. One of two things is likely to happen if you shoot without pressing the release. Either the line will snap and you just lost a $15 arrow, or the arrow will return on the same path it left....making itself a great threat to your eyesight. I have personally seen both happen multiple times. I have NEVER had either happen with my AMS. AMS will also give you more effective range because you will have less line drag. Only draw back is not having any reeling torque, but you said you already have a big fish rig. I hand figh mine anyways, and just reel up the slack.
