Ltb Spin Reel Seats

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, I broke my 2 y.o. LTB tube rod (with cork handle) and am going to ship it back to Park Falls using the Gold warranty. But am not sure about the newer skeletal reel seats on the LTB spin rods. How do you like them? They seem like they would not be comfortable for an old school guy like me. Really want to get another LTB but not sure if I'll get used to the reel seat. Appreciate feedback - thanks!

i personally don't like the newer ltb gribs. i much prefered the older split gribs /w a cork above the reel stem. They aren't too bad to get used to but i still prefer the older ones.

I don't like them at all. Enough so that it has turned me off on any future LTB rod purchases. I won't buy any rod that uses those reel seats. The seats I like the best are the type Abu Garcia uses on the gen2 Vendetta's, and the Veritas rods. St Croix also uses a very similar seat on the Rage rods and I like them too (too bad I don't like much else about the Rage rods). And the good old fashioned Fuji ECS is hard to beat. I don't care for the Fuji ACS much either, and got rid of any rods I had with those seats too

Yep, not a fan. Then again, I like Cumara A grips, so what do I know?

Last rod I bought has aluminum reel seat and aluminum tightening rings, I like it better than anything else I have.

Thanks Guys. I spoke to one of the customer service people at SC and told him I thought they lost more customers than just me with the switch to those reel seats. I do think the new guides on the LTB was a good decision. Oh well, I'll either go with a Legend Elite or 'step down' to an Avid.
