This is the larger verions of the signature Lemke Concepts LC1 fly reel seat with flanged and knurled style reel foot retainer for custom fly rod builders. It is suitable for single-handed, switch and smaller double-handed fly rods line rating #5 - #9. Subject to a vailability the LC5 seat is supplied with your choice of an endcap or a trim ring intended for use with a rear grip or fighting butt, and an optional second locking ring.
The seats are very well made in the USA by Joel Lemke and are robust but light. They are machined from aluminium alloy bar stock 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 LC20 which is the same size, or the LC1 which is the same style in a smaller size for rods #0 - #7.
