Targus Seatbox

Targus Seatbox

Having used the Targus Seatbox for over a year now I have to say that I have been really impressed with this piece of kit. I am not a small bloke, but this box, with its sliding footplate, is absolutely rock-solid. 

When I am fishing long all day it is essential that your box is really solid to reduce any micro-movements that can effect your comfort and efficiency. This box just doesn’t move, making fishing long so much more comfortable, with no rocking or movement. 

The frame is a really chunky ‘Z-style’ design that is super-stiff and gives loads of room to add trays both above and below the frame. It is a cassette-style box, so you can fit up to five trays below the frame and as many as you need to get the right height above it. I’m a tall guy and I use two shallow and one deep tray on top of the frame to give me the right seat height, less than I have used on other boxes, which I like. I would rather be able to mix and match the trays I have in the cassette system below the box, and not have to use them to get the seat height right. 

The extra strong 36mm legs are fitted all round and these are all double-extending, ideal if you are faced with uneven banks on rivers and lakes. The big handwheels make tightening up the legs  easy as they give you plenty of grip. 

A small detail, but one that I have come to appreciate, are the spirit levels on the back and side of the frame. These make getting the box set perfectly level so much easier and ensure that I am sitting properly every time. 

All in all, this is a fantastic box that ticks all the boxes for me.

The ‘Z-Frame’ of the Targus Box is very strong and the height means I only need to add a couple of trays to achieve the perfect seat position.

The six legs on the Targus Box are all 36mm, and all are telescopic for uneven banks. The chunky hand wheels make adjusting and locking the legs in place really easy.

The integrated spirit levels in the Targus Box base frame are a small touch, but one that enables me to get my box dead-level every time.

Most of the time I add a Xitan X Shelter Side Tray XL for my bait and bits.
