I know when it comes to quality you get what you pay for, and when it comes to seat boxes i don't want to have that sinking feeling with a seat box that looks great value lets me down.

So with a limited budget of around 150, what brands should i be looking at and what brands should i avoid?

A good second hand box may be an option.
So many anglers upgrading to hi end models these days it might be good to look around & see just what's on offer.
Especially if you could view before buying.

Here is some good advise stay away from ordering online with fishing republic also know as no14fishing on eBay and YORKSHIRE GAME ANGLING. If you go to the shop all ways check the goods you buy in the shop if it is boxed up, THEY DO SELL ALOT OF SECONDS.

Sorry but that look like it would fall apart with a breath of wind. You do get what you pay for with fishing gear. I bought the original space station when it came out, and it did cost a bit when new but it still in use today and gets used 2-3 times a week. Must be 4 years old now. Like Nathan says ebay is a good place to look. i think preston boxes are spot on and my mate used a maver one and that also seems sound.

I have got a leeda carp match, cost under 100. Very pleased with it. Bought a footplate for 15. Very good value for money. 25mm round legs so all the attachments fit.

like most have said id go second hand especially if you can get to view it before paying, i've seen seatboxes of a few years back like milo tardis and others that cost the earth 4 to 5 years ago go for peanuts.. i have recently picked up a milo tardis m70 9 draw granted i swapped some gear for mine but it's stood the test of time and is a solid seatbox..

I had a carbon-lite for about a year and got fed up mending it. Bought a secondhand Preston heaps better.

Yeah all top advice on the second hand subject.
I have the preston x3 off ebay and i did look at other brands like dragon carp etc to save money but you will know where your money went with a leading brand.My mates mudfoot just came off on his avanti omnibox!
Literally it just snapped off at the join to the leg.Real bad moulding on the plastic as it was very brittle.
Pay out once rather than again and again!

Have to agree with Parkes, although if you look on ebay there are some cracking boxes on there going really cheap!! Check out the preston space station.
