Trying to find some inspiration to make a start on my Atomsix blank.

Any new fancy reel seats out there?

I have bought a few interesting seats of these guys http://www.hilevel.se/en/reel-seats-1/

Have a browse, some interesting ones. Always had great service.

Having said that, closer to home is Sandy on this site, he has a range of seats from Lemeke. (sp?)
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....

Hi Munro

What sort of thing do you have in mind? if its classic metalwork and a wooden insert, i have loads of select inserts that suit the Lemke LC1 and LC7, so can easily send you some photo's if you fancy one.
Mark at https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/TaniwhaRodworks has the metal work in various colours, he also has a few decent inserts as well. Worth a look if you are after something nice.  :z16

Thanks guys they are handy links.


The rod is a 9ft 8wt streamer fishing rod so I think the  Alps reel seat will suit it well.

I have a stunning ALPS reelseat at home that I have yet to use. Its a cracker.

Its the metal one at the top, but mine has a woven metal insert.  Just need the right plank for it.
