I’ve mentioned this seatbox on steroids in a couple of earlier posts, and now I have one! There is an immense amount of hardware in this package, as you can see from the picture (not pictured are the 33 pole float winders, and 2 removable trays that are are inside the seatbox modules).
There are many configurations possible, from a simple single module with seat cushion on four square legs, all the way up to the seatbox and slide-out footplate with a combined wheel barrow / platform / pole support system. As a platform, this beast is designed to allow you to sit on the box in 3 feet of water – perfect for the wilder waters we get here in Sweden.
Normally you pay extra for a side tray, pole roller, pole rest and a hoop to hold a groundbait bowl, but these are all included along with 2 spray bars and 5 accessory blocks.
The wheels come with two different axle setups: one as the full barrow and one as a more traditional wheel kit that connects to the seatbox, typically replacing a couple of the legs during transit.
I set to work putting this goliath together into a barrow configuration and loaded up my Preston Hardcase Pole Holdall and 2 rod sleeve. The wheels on the barrow can be fitted in one of two positions: one, as in the picture below, with the wheels more central for smoother paths, and secondly, further forward for rutted or bumpy terrain.
Now I can’t wait to transfer all my kit from my countless plastic boxes into the seatbox modules and go fishing!
