Planon Tackle Box

Ample Storage Space

Plano 1374 Tackle Box Rack System is massive.

This thing measures 16" x 16.5", so you'll be able to pack this thing with unlimited tackle. Technically speaking, what we have here is a rack system, as the name suggests.

The package includes four removable/retractable StowAway® utility boxes. These boxes come equipped with ProLatch™ closures, so you won't have to worry about these boxes opening accidentally. Plus, they're easy to stack.

The transparent DuraView™ covers will let you easily identify the boxes' contents without using the latches. There's also top-access storage where you can put the items that you need quickly and easily accessible.

You can even insert the company's 3503 spinnerbait box inside this thing. You'll have to purchase the box separately though because it is not supplied with the package.

The high-end rack system and the boxes are made from plastic but, in this case, the plastic is as sturdy as durable as plastic tackle boxes get.

You'll be able to carry the rack system using the top handle. The handle's not necessarily ergonomic but good enough to make the box comfortably portable.

Long story short, this awesome rack system offers ample storage space. You'll be able to store and bring just about everything with you.

Planon ___Tackle Box

Tough Plastic

Plano Large 3-Tray Tackle Box has been designed with comfort and convenience in mind first and foremost.

The box measures 9.75" x 19.25", meaning this thing is wide but not necessarily long. The plastic parts are strong and tough enough to provide shock resistance and make sure the tackle is safe inside.

As the product's name suggests, there are three trays inside the box. These trays come equipped with adjustable compartments that you can turn from 29 to 39 when necessary.

Before that though, the comfort-form, over-molded handle will let you transport/carry this handy box with ease. Of course, even the best handle cannot really define any half-decent tackle box.

As far as we're concerned, what defines this product before anything else is these two top-access storage areas. You can store small items there and keep them always accessible.

These storage areas come fitted with DuraView™ lids, so you'll know what's inside them even without opening these compartments.

Last but not least, there's deep bulk storage space underneath the trays where you can put the biggest tackle.

Bottom line, Plano Large 3-Tray Tackle Box allows you to separate and divide everything, keeping various accessories precisely where they should be.

Planon Tackle Boxes

Starter Tackle Box

Planon Tackle Boxes Fishing Tackle Storage is somewhat basic but that is what's great about this product.

What we have here are the company's StowAway® utility boxes. You can separate these four boxes or stack them together. You can bring one box. You can bring them all. These intermediate-sized plastic boxes, measuring 1.25" x 9.13" x 5" each, will be able to accommodate various items.

The boxes come equipped with the company's ProLatch™ closures, so you won't have to worry about them snapping and opening when that's not necessary.

Besides that, these basic tackle boxes are see-through, meaning you'll have no issues identifying what's inside the boxes without opening the closures.

The boxes come equipped with 5-9 adjustable compartments. The dividers that let you adjust these compartments can be somewhat tough to separate and piece together, so don't be afraid to add some force when tackling (pardon the pun) these tackle dividers.

Apart from that, the company's plastic boxes are as heavy-duty as they usually are, meaning you won't have to be too gentle with them.

In short, Planon Tackle Boxes Fishing Tackle Storage is not as convoluted as most tackle boxes and that's where the product's advantages lie.

Flambeau Outdoors 6382TB 2-Tray

Nothing Flimsy About this Box

Flambeau Outdoors 6381TB is everything these boxes used to be back in the days, hence the "classic" part. There are upsides and downsides to these old-school fishing organizers.

The downside is the fact that the lids are not see-through, so you'll have to remember where you put everything or rely on guesswork to find the right tackle. The upside is that, when not see-through, these plastic components are much more rugged.

The company's all-weather, oil-resistant build will make sure this box is able to survive anything and last decades. Meanwhile, the tongue-and-groove attachment between the base and the lid ensures this water-resistant fit that keeps the tackle nice and dry.

At the same time, the Tip-Guard™ tray supports will let you apply decent pressure onto these trays without worrying about them cracking and crumbling. These trays are divided into 15 compartments but you can use the 6 removable dividers to change the compartment quantity.

There's also the flip-top lid accessory compartment where you can store large tools. That flip-top space can be hard to click shut though but you'll get used to that.

In conclusion, Flambeau Outdoors 6381TB will last and that's precisely why we've added this product to the list.
