I paid 120 with a maver 4m whip thrown in That I still use ... in 1989 or so. Still have that one.
the other two I’ve bought since for about £40 each off eBay.

i do also remember the RRP being around that cost.

I had heard that modern boxes were a bit “heavy”
There was one on eBay a couple of months ago with a buy it now price of £300 , and there were 7 people watching. !!!

There are 2 on eBay at the moment for £300.
They must be joking.
Another on at around £50 but it's been ruined by someone fitting an Octoplus leg system to it. 😠

I dropped lucky about three or four years ago and picked up one of these:



from the online/ebay retailer (home-un-leisure) that's based in Darlington and appears to buy up lots of discontinued lines from the major brands.

They: https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/home-un-leisure/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=
have lots of fishing gear listed and the occasional bargain crops up.

I got it for only £127.00 and use it for my stillwater/pole fishing trips.

I have been looking at the ads for the Trabbucco Genius canal seats, either with 25mm or 36mm legs, they look good, drawer units can be bought separately,
Has anyone heard any reports on these.?
I am downsizing from a Preston Innovations SL30, so that wil be up for sale. It has 2extra units. A pole winder tray unit, and a pole winder/shallow drawer unit, a side tray and possibly the new style pole steady/spray bar. £200

I made the long drive south to visit Simon Peter Crabtree and picked up the seat box he has kindly given me. Traffic light on way down, traffic a pig with accidents and blocked roads on way back.

We had a good chat and |I got a demonstration . A very robust box with legs that will even take my weight.

Thanks again Simon. Donation on way to your chosen charity.
