Haha I'm after the mango now. Do like the blue tho
I bought one of these lately for moving swims easily on the canal (4KG without the legs):I have a Milo, very comfy & heavy. I also have a small Rive box, quite light. The rive boxes I think are the best bet for getting spares for in years to come, very adaptable with different drawer units.
Similar to mine, fairly light, trays can be swapped so you can adapt it for various venues, F2 trays fit.That one looks like it maybe an older model with F1 trays.
Because it packs away flat, it’s great for transporting around in the car too.That looks fantastic. Wouldn't mind one of those. I only fish once a week & don't need loads of gear on a trolley. My On Box is miles too heavy.
Ooops. To you yes but to me no. Rive set the standard for high stability 36mm seat boxes and still continue to be the main brand in that others strive to achieve. Hence the market being 36mm on the flagship boxes for tackle brands£ 1253 for a fishing seat that's bloody madness a waste of money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Personally Dave I know they are built well but to be honest (tackle tart in me) don't you think they look a bit...well you knowOctbox.
No plastic drawers. Drawers don't fill with water or stick. You can adapt to any configuration. If you buy the trolley wheel and handles you don't need a trolley, (it will take all your gear). You can even get a side footplate for when you want to fish down the side.
Alloy construction made to last with dedicated side trays and accessories + Preston kit fits both D25 and D36.
Platform uk box was the box I had before I brought the Octbox, I swapped the seats over before selling the platforms boxOther than that I think they are superb and the best box I have owned since the Platforms UK Tuffbox. It's a pity they don't have the gel seat like the Platforms UK box. If I had to choose another box it would be a Rive however I honestly can't see me changing it. My next purchase will be the double wheel as I have the single XL wheel for the rivers and I may go for a custom seat preferably a gel one
Replaced my worn out seat with one from Custom Seats, I have all three wheel kits, double front, double rear and single wheel - don’t use any of them, ended up sticking with my 4 wheel shuttle to which I added the wide axle kits from Steve.Platform uk box was the box I had before I brought the Octbox, I swapped the seats over before selling the platforms box
I tried my Octbox on my 4 wheel Preston trolley, I found it all heavier to push, so took my wide adjustable axle from the preston trolley( same axle as you have probably) and attached it to the two angled bits of the Octbox wheel kit, so I can take it of and on the same as Octbox twin wheel kit, except now the wheels are on the outside of the legs, very stable. Customs seats look good from what I have seen, was going to order a tuff seat as mine is getting a bit tired, they used to sell them separately for £50 but saw they are no longer for saleReplaced my worn out seat with one from Custom Seats, I have all three wheel kits, double front, double rear and single wheel - don’t use any of them, ended up sticking with my 4 wheel shuttle to which I added the wide axle kits from Steve.
Yeah, it actually interchanges with my main seat box so you can add as many trays, drawers as you like.Brilliant. That's it....I'm gonna sell the Onbox & trolley and buy one of those.
Can you get extra drawers/winder trays for it?
