Wondered if anybody had one or used to have one, looking to treat myself to a new sidetray in new year, i dont match fish so not looking for owt too big or fancy, but at £65 thought they looked half decent against the usual suspects at around £100+.....ive a matrix f25 seatbox at mo and use a universal sidetray (only small), the caperlan is 60x45cm with 2 legs for rigidity, any thoughts welcomed.

Looks reasonable for the money and has a 2 year warranty.

Hi there a friend of mine has the caperlan Hooded Side tray with the caperlan CSB D36 seat box, I can honestly say both are very very good, and excellent value for money, well made and very sturdy, when I hopefully upgrade my seat box next year that’s what I’ll be getting with out doubt, the side tray and the seat box are every bit as good as other brands costing twice the price.

Thanks for that info Jonny. (y)
No bother m8, honestly you would really struggle to get better value for money, like I said the caperlan d36 seat box is also very good, ridiculous good for 299.99 to be fair, better the some that cost almost twice the price, when people twig on a bit I bet all there prices start go up

I’ve had one for nearly a year, it does what it says on the tin. Bought it in Belgium for about €55. The only problem is it is slightly heavier than the Preston/Matrix etc trays. I also had the 25mm seat box for over 3 years good but again heavy but definitely well built, there is also a good selection of extra trays at reasonable prices. The older Sensas trays also fit.
