About LC1 and LC7 reel seats

The LC1 and LC7 are lighter weight reel seats in the Lemke range, suitable for fly rods up to #6/7. The LC1 has a flared reel foot retainer and a classic style with knurled details. The LC7 is 'Garrison' style, a more streamlined look without knurling.

They are supplied with one lock ring.  Uplocking seats come with an end cap as standard .  Fighting butt trim bands can be purchased with an uplocking seat subject to availability, but not on their own. Downlocking seats are supplied with a trim band for the cork handle end.

The seats are machined aluminium alloy and anodised or nickel plated.  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 you cannot find the colour you want, the Struble U20 is very similar to the LC7 and the same diameter, as is the cheaper UL1.  The UL3 Classic medium is similar to the Lemke LC1.

How to order

The price shown is for the metal parts only but a matching standard insert / spacer can be purchased for a discounted price, from a nominal £0.01, see the linked listing. There are eleven £0.01 standard insert options: flor cork, matt carbon, red Paduak, natural brown figured or burl Sandalwood, dyed Sandalwood burl (in red, blue, black or green), Walnut and Wenge.


A range of other lower cost inserts are also available in the Standard range for a small surcharge, including Struble inserts. All will fit as long as they are purchased together so we can make any necessary adjustments before shipping.

Premium insert upgrade option


These seats will also fit our individually priced and photographed premium stabilised burl and exotic wood or acrylic inserts for Lemke LC1, LC7, Struble U20 and D20 and Seaguide UL1 or UL2 seats. These inserts are also discounted when purchased with matching metal parts, see the linked premium insert listing for purchase options.
