LC5, and LC20 reel seat inserts / spacers
Polished hardwood, acrylic, carbon or cork reel seat inserts / spacers.
We make or source these inserts to be purchased with our LC5 and LC20 Lemke Concepts reel seats, to fit both up lock or down lock seats. One insert can be purchased for each set of reel seat hardware at the price listed.
We prefer not to sell inserts on their own, but if you wish to do so then select the £10 price surcharge option when ordering. The surcharge will be applied to each insert purchased without matching reel seat hardware.
Customers outside the UK: export purchase price will apply excluding UK VAT sales tax
Inserts labelled with a two or three letter code are hand made by Taniwha Rodworks and each is unique (one of each). 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. These inserts are hand 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, waterportoof and flexible UV resistant clear coat. Then polished to a high gloss finish.
Lower cost wood and cork inserts without individual 2 or 3 letter codes are made for us and are not stablised. For these wood inserts the photo provided is representative and you will receive a similar one in the same wood burl and colour, but each will have their own unique colour and grain pattern.
