About LC14 reel seats
The LC14 is a Garrison style cap and ring reel seat, with a pocketed end cap taking a cylindrical (unmortised) insert. A timeless classic ideal for lighter line weight rods including cane and fibreglass. Recommended for single handed fly rods line rating #0 - #5.
The seats are down locking. They are supplied with one sliding band lock ring and a trim band to join the cork handle.
This is the lightest seat we sell, just 7g with a cork insert, and will hold a fly reel with a standard size reel seat foot securely.
The seats are machined aluminium alloy and anodised or nickel plated. The nickel plated finish looks exactly like solid nickel silver but is just as light as the anodised seats.
Inserts labelled with a two or three letter code are made in the UK by Taniwha Rodworks 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. High gloss finish as standard. 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.
Where the code has a third letter 'S' the wood has been stabilised by infusion with acrylic resin under vacuum and/or pressure.
