About LC16 reel seats
We have Black and 'Grey so dark it is almost black' in stock, no other colours left for 2022. Both look black in photos and in the hand, they are shown together in the first listing photo.
The LC16 is a cap and ring reel seat, with a pocketed end cap taking a mortised 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.
