Lemke Concepts premium quality reel seats, favoured by many boutique rod makers and high end commercial custom builders. Made in the USA by Joel Lemke.
The LC20 has a flanged reel foot retainer and twin deep knurled locking nuts. It is suitable for heavy duty use. Subject to availability the LC20 is supplied with your choice of an endcap or a trim ring intended for use with a rear grip or fighting butt. Recommended for single-handed rods line rating #6- #10, and switch and smaller double-handed fly rod up to #6/7. Can be reverse mounted for spey downlock, recessing the reel seat hood into the lower grip (as long at the grip OD is at least 27mm at the front end).
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.
If your preferred colour or model is out of stock, consider the LC5 which is the same size in a more traditional-looking style. For rods #8 - #12, try the larger LC25 or LC26 (spey rod size) in the same style as the LC20.
