Nordik Tackle, the German company behind the Octbox, has come on in leaps and bounds in the eight years since the launch of its original Mk1 seatbox.
The latest incarnation of the legendary Octbox D36 is the most advanced to date, boasting a host of angler-friendly innovations.
With no expense spared on materials or design, the box is superbly stable, even when positioned on soft or silty bottoms, thanks to its 35mm diameter legs and cleverly corrugated mudfeet.
In lab tests the leg block systems were found to support up to 280kg (44 stone) without slipping, which by anyone’s standards is impressive.
The box also features a unique Outrigger bar set that allows it to be used without a platform in up to 5ft of water. The bar is used as a ‘step-up’ when climbing on to or off of the box.
As well as catering for the needs of anglers on natural venues, the feature-packed D25 seatbox system is ideal for the commercial match angler. Extending posts are built into the top of each leg which allows side trays and accessory fittings to be perfectly positioned to any height.
The aluminium box, weighing only 13.5kg in its four-drawer configuration, is one of the lightest seatboxes on the market. It is constructed in such a manner that its side drawers can be opened without the angler having to take his weight off the box. For info see www.nordiktackle.net.
