The problem is that I want to use the batson spey grips and they have a cutout of .895. I did find a nice looking seat on Anglers Roost though at .875 which should work with it.....I think.

All you have to do is dremel it out a small amount to fit the LC25, I have people do it all the time

I'm very particular about my reel seats. I took a look at the LCs but they just didn't do it for me.

I ordered the parts yesterday actually. I was originally going to go a little cheaper on the build, but figured I might as well deck it out since I'm very excited about this rod.

I went with:
Batson front and rear spey grip
Alps RA7 reel seat with woven graphite insert
REC guides (12,10,5,4,3,3,2,2,2,2) + REC large tip top
