Check for breakage
on April 13, 2010
I was looking for a primary tackle box that would hold most of my lures and fishing tools, and still fit in the well on our boat, for storage between outings. I was very pleased with the purchase, and was able to fit everything I needed in this box. There are many adjustable compartments in both layers, and a large compartment that can hold tools and other accessories. I like the fact that both layers can be accessed without flipping the box over. This one allows access from the clasps that are located on each side for one layer and in the middle for the other layer.
But before I even put it out in the boat, I noticed that the plastic trim that goes all around the top of the bottom layer was broken in the front, and separated from the box from the front around to the side - about 8"-9". It was probably broken in shipping, or even before it was shipped. But since I had spent too much time organizing all my stuff into the box, and since it did not affect the opening or closing of the box, I was able to glue the strip back on so that it's barely noticeable, and, so far, the glue has held up. Were it not for that breakage, the box would have earned 5 stars from me.
I would recommend this tackle box to any frequent fisherman, but do check it thoroughly for breaks when it arrives. I had a similar experience with a clear plastic box (had a hole broken out of the bottom of one of the compartments), but was able to catch that one and return it before I went to the trouble of filling it.
