    I love my Rive, It is no doubt better made than all other boxes on the market. It is more stable than any other box on the market, is nicer looking than any other box on the market and it does things other boxes cant. It also makes my fishing so much more comfortable, It gives me peace of mind when fishing uneven banks, knowing i wont end up in the cut like i have done with other makes. So sorry i disagree a seatbox is not just a seatbox. Wouldnt have a preston box given me, cheap chinese tat. If anyone disagrees about Rive its cause they cant afford one.

    Regards Shooter.

      By the way, My RIVE box has got a swivelling seat, spirit levels and soon to have side footplate with RIVE D36 stability in abundance.

      Regards Shooter

        Well I certainly can afford one, but I think they are the ugliest most overpriced rubbish on the market.

                Thank You Nick.

                You hear that carlbags, 1000 years old, built to last, bombproof and a tackle tarts dream if you can afford one.
                I rest my case.

                    like the look of rive box's would love one. i can afford 1 too but would rather keep my on box there too dear for a box


                    • #11
                      i can afford 1 as well
                      But i dont think any box is worth a Grand
                      I use an Avanti Space Station £200 it is the most stable box i have ever had .
                      Believe me i aint no Featherweight as many on here know
                      Would reccomend it to anyone !!
                      A few of the lads @ Moorlands have recently started using them ,
                      Think i might Ring Roger Surgay & ask for Sponsorship !!!
                      No item of Tackle will suit us all ,it is down to personal choice,
                      Same as everything else .

                        I know they are a little overpriced, but i think some of that was due to the exchange rate which the dealers in this country have not passed on to thier customers when the rate improved. Money aside i honestly dont think there is a box on the market what is as stable or better built. I have previously owned a preston x5, and a milo 1000 before the rive and neither came close for stability or simplicity in use. the extras are quality built aswell. Have you never noticed how many top anglers use them. Money aside there is no box better. If you can afford one i would recommend anyone to get one.

                          20 years ago some of the best boxes around were ASI or Boss 6 / 8 draw systems, the Boss was around £450, if you take RPI index of 3%, project it forward 20 years you get around £810. (the price of a decent Rive)

                          I sold my Boss box 18 months ago after 15 years good service, it was still in very good condition.

                          In 15 years time, i will sell the Rive i bought a few months ago. It will still be in good condition. (i just wont be able to lift it !)

                          What is the one item of kit you will use every time you go fishing for the entire duration of your session.... your seatbox.

                              I think shooter's getting confused between being able to afford a Rive, and wanting to buy one.

                              I can afford one, but I doubt I'll get one. Too big, too fussy, and won't do owt my Tourney Pro and Strongbox don't do.

                              I'd sooner break out the THERE was a
