It’s amazing the contrasts in venues that I tend to fish these days. One day I might be scratching around on a canal for silver fish, then the next on a commercial full of big carp. Trying to cover every situation with just a single pole or a few top kits is impossible and the last thing I need is to leave something at home, only to realise its needed at the crucial moment so I need a holdall that will take everything needed to cover every eventuality. 

Since swapping over to the Sphere luggage range I have to say that I’m completely satisfied, as who ever looked at this luggage has certainly created a range that not only has an innovative design but has also looked at all previous weak points, before creating a product that not only looks really stylish with its carbon effect finish but will certainly last the test of time.

What I really like about the Sphere range is it’s obviously been designed by a match angler, one that has pin-pointed all the fast wear areas, reinforced these as well as using the very best fittings and products throughout. I really like the Sphere Multipocket Holdall as it protects all my valuable poles and top kits. The large padded main compartment accommodates twelve tubes and the integrated front compartment divides into one full length and two half length pockets which are ideal for handles, legs, mini-ext etc.  The outer shell is completely smooth, wipes clean and has no annoying sagging pockets and the high quality; heavy-duty zips open 90% of the holdall’s length eliminating any zip failure at the base. The padded shoulder strap is easy to adjust, comfortable, strong and reliable, there’s even a pull handle on the reinforced base and a Velcro’s connecting carry handle making this big piece of kit easy to manoeuvre around the swim or in and out of my car.

Created for the serious angler that demands the best and although not the cheapest around it certainly covers everything the modern day match angler requires plus much more and being made from the very best products and fittings available, this holdall is going to give me many years of satisfying usage. 

Available in two sizes – a 6+ tube single compartment and an X large 12+ compartment.

This is a seriously big holdall that can carry all my gear with ease.

As you would expect, the zips are top-notch.

The straps and stitching are well up to the job of carrying such a large, and potentially heavy, holdall.

"Available in either six rod or twelve rod sizes."

All of the handles have thick padding.

The name says it all.
