Looking around at new seatbox's, hankering for a Rive as I have an old one, but looking at them, not sure if the footplate is independent from the seat or fixed distance from seat, plus prices are mad so looked elsewhere. Thinking between the 2 in title, anyone have one ? I see people recommend the matrix box's, just wondering about weight,durability.functionality of both. Theres a used MAP one with extras on eBay, looks good,price good, or a brand new one at a ridiculously cheap price (dodgy?) Any help would be appreciated.

It's the H30 lite I'm on about, is the only difference between the H30 & H30 lite the base unit ?

Hi,
Never had a map box but the matrix f25 I have is spot on for me. I've had matchbox and maver seatboxes before but this one is the best imho, rock solid even when legs extended as for the weight waaaaay lighter than the maver 200 box I had And I would say similar to the matchbox I had,however, having said that I use a trolley so,weight not so much an issue, sliding footplate independent of mainframe, sidedrawers only open one way but you can turn them round to suit the way you want them (if you know what I mean) if you carry Pole rigs then you would need to buy a tray unit to accommodate them, I can't comment on the map but I'm a happy bunny with the f25?
