  • Conti seat boxes ( BEST ONE )?

    Can anyone tell me what the best continental seat box would be to buy as i am looking for a new one, i would prefer one with at least four draws and space in the bottom for tackle, i need to know which are good value and which to stay away from??????

    Whats your budget, is weight a consideration as some boxes weigh a ton empty, do you prefer front draws or side draws, there are as you know so many options, do you fish mainly commercials or rvers and canals.

        Most prefer side draw as your legs dont get in the road, if you are planning a few river sessions I would avoid the latest Milo or Rive boxes as they are heavy when empty, although Rive do a simple box that additional draw/tray units can be purchased and attached as needed, I am looking for a new box myself and have narrowed it down to either a Matchbox Pyramid or a Plattforms Box both suberb quality the Matchbox range is a bit more flexible and again bits can be added, Have a look here http://www.talkangling.co.uk/matchbox.htm

          looked at the matchbox but the legs have put me off because of the square metal feet, they look to rigid, so on unlevel; ground will it move and slip or bend the legs.
          Also i like the rive boxes that you can add on trays to( not the new rive with the big metal arms on the side, cant see the point of the new rive boxes)
          Price range looking at £300 ish.
          Thanks for your help

            go for the Plattforms uk seat box, well made, no plastic catches to snap and no heavier than any of the others out there, for best deal give Fosters of Birmingham a ring they stock all the range and extras

              thanks for advice.
              Also i would like to get involved with match fishing again, i was the local junior champion at my club, it was only a small club though.
              The club is no longer going so i dont know how to get involved in matches anymore.
              I am based in cheshire so any clubs in east cheshire or north staffs or open matches in these areas would be a help

              Thanks

                        New member here so hello all.

                        Not wishing to hijack this thread but I'm also on the lookout for a replacement for my 25 yr old Shakespeare plastic box (!) but, as one of those strange folks that like to fish rivers I'm looking for something I could, in theory anyway, carry for a reasonable distance. Most of the all-singing, all-dancing modern seatbox systems look a bit heavy and bulky for that sort of thing.

                        Any suggestions for a strong, lightweight seatbox? Matchbox msx looks like a possibility - they're one of the few seatbox systems advertised where the weight of the box is given.

                        Cheers, Tony

                          I agree I've had a brilo box for 5 years (got it off a mate who'd also had it about 5 years) and its still going strong. The best bit, I contacted Brilo about a new seat and a folding footplate, they couldn't do enough to help me and even said that if I was within traveling distance and I could take it down they'd sort out my requirements whilst I waited so I would'nt have to be without my box.

                          Thats the difference good customer service

                            I agree its got to be Brilo. Absolutely rock solid and bombproof. If they are good enough for A S then they must be good. I,m on my second and its top class.

                              The Rive is by far the best box I have ever had, it is rock solid and the adjusters for the legs are big enough that even with wet hands they operate easily, plus you can make it as light as you want by just keeping all your canal gear in one section and commercials stuff in another - it is magic!
