John: we've got the REC PLRN seat in stock and have numerous satisfied customers that will tell you the cork is definitely above average. A nice light seat with beautiful knurling and details on the nickel silver rings and grip trim ring. You can find it on "Our Store" under "Reel Seats", "REC", "Nickel Silver", page 2...or just search for PLRN!
