You will probably have to use the reel base that doesn't use a clamp.

I had the same problem with my SX 6/4 on a Diawa Interline. I purchased an aftermarket reel foot from Chark Bait to replace the origional one, the only draw back was you could no longer use the origional clamp system from Avet. But if you are fishing the mfg suggesteline rating you do not need a reel clamp.

Haven't tried them, but Chark carries several clamps. Take the rod and reel in and try them on.
IMHO the rod builder should have tried the reels on before building the rods.

Funny... I never have had a rod that my Penns or Newells wouldn't fit.
