    +1 I figure buy what you want, it is a custom rod and reel seats can be a very beautiful part of a build. Love the build and look forward to seeing some pictures of it in action. Where did you get the thread?

    No I wouldn't. Last few builds I did were using Joel Lemke seats and hardware.

    I looked at the lemke stuff. Nice but expensive, and mostly all metal.

    I tried it out yesterday, was sooooo much fun on bluegills and small bass. I got the thread from Hook & Hackle. I think it was called FishHawk variegated thread. The color alternates on its own, so for someone like me who isn't great at doing that manually while winding thread, it's really nice.

    Glad you didn't go with an "ugly as hell" seat. It would have deterred from the beauty of the build

    Lemke.... mostly metal? We frequenting the same site? With the LC1 up or down locking, LC17, 25, 26 or Titanium hardware you are looking at a ton of options for inserts. Not to mention his sliding band hardware. No $$$$ interest in Joel's seats. I do use them on all my customer builds, unless I am turning my own sliding band hardware.

    Hmmm, maybe I'm thinking of another site. I'll have to check them out again next time.

    I'll add that I love the seats I get from Dave Winslow. He offers three styles available and turns the inserts himself. Very easy to work with, nice site that is great to navigate with prices listed. Also at a good price point - $25-$35.

    Thanks for all the great comments guys. I've used it a few times so far now and it's a blast for bluegill and bass. I even managed some 6 - 8 inch native brookies on it this past weekend which was a ton of fun.

    Definitely my favorite rod build so far.
