After the great success of last year’s four-legged S4 UFO box, Maver got their thinking caps on to produce more boxes in the range but at a price within range of most pleasure, club and open match anglers. The result has been the UFO X6.
Made from the same aircraft-grade aluminium as the S4, the new UFO is surprisingly light (it weighs just 13.5kg when empty) for a box carrying so much storage. The key difference you’ll notice immediately is that the X6 has six, rather than four, legs, making it rock-solid.
Available in Green or the very popular Mango colour, the X6 is missing the bells and whistles of the S4, namely the side tray, bump bar, and umbrella and keepnet arms, but it’s still a highly impressive system that can be added to from the vast range of Maver accessories.
Boasting a free flow industrial-strength sliding cassette beneath the box and fully adjustable mudfeet, the seating position can be set precisely on all terrains thanks to the fully height-adjustable frame and the four round 30mm anodised telescopic legs and two round 30mm anodised accessory legs.
Maver’s state-of-the-art clip system gives you access to the box from both front and back, as well as helping to prevent accidental damage.
In terms of storage, there are two sliding front drawers with partitions, a winder tray for pole rigs and a built-in deep base unit to cater for metalware and other bigger bulky tackle items. To this you can then add extra S4 units for more trays or perhaps a cross drawer, depending on your preference.
The pole seat is anti-memory in two colours with a pole safety strap to help when fishing long in windy conditions.
