The Tournament X 250, Daiwa’s new box for 2016, has seen input from top match anglers William Raison and Steve Ringer. They bring the angling public a set-up that’s just as mouth-watering as the eagerly-awaited Tournament 500 was last year – but at a cheaper price.
It’s built around Daiwa’s rock solid ‘X’ bridge support system and aluminium frame, There’s no skimping on trays and drawers to carry all that you need. Every part of the detachable top and bottom modules features the clever OTC (one touch clip) system as standard to allow for ease of access and interchanging to suit your requirements.
In the top module you’ll find a single cross drawer with a shallow winder tray above, and 30 pole winders in two sizes are supplied with the box to get you up and running. This all sits below a comfortable pole seat with retaining strap and an adjustable padded carry strap.
Sliding on a rail beneath is the lower ‘cassette’ module that packs a deep central drawer unit measuring 22cm x 26cm x 4.5cm with side spaces for larger accessories. You’ll also find a trio of 20mm modular trays with an internal depth of 17mm, plus the base layer and lid.
There’s a super strong, non-slip sliding footplate that retracts underneath the box body. The six 25mm telescopic legs feature large mudfeet and compact handwheels with Daiwa’s no mark function.
You can also take your pick of colours, as the box is available in blue-and-black or red-and-black.
