Hay Luke like the box but what the fuzz I couldn’t think why I needed little boxes to put my hook in? I have a couple small rare earth magnets glued onto the little devider and it holds hooks on bolth sides of that decider. I don’t have to reach in because the magnet make them stick sideways. Did you cover this already and I must it if so I’m sorry that’s.

Are there any types of soft plastic which dont go with this box? Seems like multiple materials in the construction, and I would be nervous about trusting it.

Can I trust this box to keep dis-similar types separated?

Doesnt work with Zman products. Over time my plano edge box with Zman lures has warped and made it difficult to close and latch. Otherwise no issues.

As a kayak fisherman, I use zip closure plastic bags inside of a gallon size plastic bag to separate my rigs, lures, and jigs. I use the tackle trays to store lures with other gear not in current use. It seems to work ok.

Nice but too expensive

I agree that they are more expensive than the more economical styles, but only the Edge Flex is $30 plus. The standard Plano Edge is about $10 cheaper, so that only makes it $10 more expensive than the more economical brands.

Just for total disclosure.

Thanks, y’all do a great job!!

Love the club!!

How about a dunk test comparison? Should be interesting. In theory, the 3 latches should be tighter and therefore more suited for water intrusion.

Yea when I worked at west marine for about 2 months before I was blessed to get my old job back I saw the new Plano tackle boxes to me they are to shallow and way to expensive although anything bought at west marine is expensive I have found years ago while reading a tip from a Florida sportsman mag about taking those silicon packets the kind found in pill bottles for prescriptions and other things needing protection from moisture take these packets and place one in every compartment that has hooks in it and guaranteed unless the container is submerged in water there will be no rust on them and or moisture either I’m old fashioned and have found what works does not necicarily cost a lot of money or is new on the market I have been doing this for years and have yet to loose a fish because of a rusted hook and I use the same cheap tackle containers that are only a few dollars at Wal-Mart works for me😉😁

Yep, thats what is in the little grey box in the Plano Edge box – a silica packet. I throw in extras when I have lots of hooks.

Great video Luke!

I was having issues with the cost of those boxes but I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ve lost way more than the cost of the boxes to rusted hooks and jig heads. Plus the time and energy to clean the boxes out and replace the hooks after the rust starts.

You mentioned how loud the old style is. I’ve spooked fish off just by opening and closing those boxes so I know what you mean.

Can’t wait to try one.

Hey there Luke, Great Review! You mentioned the risk of salt water corrosion with non-sealed containers. I would be interested in your recommendation for restoring corroded equipment, lures, hooks, swivels and such, that have deteriorated over time due to salt water and other corrosive elements. At what point do you throw away equipment that you can’t restore to a reasonable level of performance? Thanks!

Great idea to quarenteen those that you have used until you have the means to rinse, dry and store again. I found this video on removing rust/corrosion from gear, but as Pat mentions in his post, the cost benefit of a great waterproof box is a nobrainer, as I look at all my tackle that has not been taken cared of properly at a time that this waterproof technology didn’t exist 🙂

Hi, Luke: just watched the video where you explained that you leave the loop knot attached when you cut it off the leader as your “reminder” that it needs to be rinsed down. Great idea. Thanks for another great tip.
