Lemke Concepts LC1 or LC7 full uplocking reel seats, hardware with an insert

How to order

This is a two-part purchase of a complete reel seat. Reel seat skeletons and inserts are not sold on their own.

Please first select the metal skeleton(s) you want, then add one insert for each skeleton - all from the available list below. The price excluding UK VAT sales tax will apply for goods sent outside the UK.

The reel seat price includes one of our own wood or acrylic inserts.  There is no additional charge if the the insert is priced zero.  A surcharge applies for stabilised and rarer woods, where noted in the listing prices. 

The seats are down locking, uplockers are listed separately. They are supplied with one lock ring and an end cap as standard.  

Fighting butt trim bands can be purchased with a reel seat, subject to availability, but not on their own.

About LC1 and LC7 reel seats

The LC1 and LC7 are lighter weight reel seats in the Lemke range, suitable for fly rods up to #6/7.  

The LC1 has a flanged reel foot retainer and a classic style with knurled details. 

The LC7 is 'Garrison' style, a more streamlined or modern look without knurling. If you cannot find the colour you want, the Struble U20 is very similar to the LC7 and the same size.

Insert bore is 10mm for dyed Sandalwood or Acrylic, otherwise 11mm. Check this will fit the butt diameter of your blank.

Full seat measurements are provided below, and see the Lemke reel seats group shot in the listing pictures for comparative sizing of all the Lemke Concepts models.

About Lemke Concepts

Lemke Concepts premium quality reel seats, favoured by many boutique rod makers and upmarket commercial custom builders. Made in the USA by Joel Lemke.  

The seats are machined aluminium alloy and anodised or nickel plated. The nickel plated finish is almost as light as the anodised seats.  Anodised finishes are safe for salt water use. Nickel silver and smoked nickel silver have a mirror-like depth of shine, and are recommended for fresh water use only. 

Wood or acrylic reel seat inserts

One insert can be purchased with each set of hardware only.

The wood inserts at the introductory price point are made for us.  Premium options hand made in the UK by Taniwha Rodworks are offered for a modest surcharge. These are manufactured using a range of techniques and finishes to enhance wood figure and grain finishing with at least three dip coats of ultra hard, waterproof and flexible UV resistant clear coat.   Then polished to a high gloss finish. 

Where the insert code has a third letter "- S" the wood has been stabilised by infusion with acrylic resin under vacuum and/or pressure.

If several inserts are listed as available under one code, then they are all very similar in appearance, colour, figure and quality to the one pictured.
