Flambeau Outdoors in the US has teamed up with Bassmaster Elite star Mike Iaconelli to develop a new tackle box that can be customised to suit the needs of every angler.
The Ike Quotient Series line contains a complete battery of small internal boxes that replace the traditional divider system. They can be swapped or taken out completely to make room for bulkier items like pliers, bags of soft plastics, extra large lures or spools of line.
The internal box dividers stay in place even when adjacent ones are removed. The divider boxes come in three sizes and are interchangeable throughout the line.
“At a time when other tackle storage companies are pretty much doing the same thing, Flambeau is offering something truly new and different here,” said Iaconelli. “The Zerust corrosion protection and this new divider system sets the Flambeau Ike Quotient Series boxes apart from a sea of indistinguishable, same-old stuff.”
Flambeau added that they also boast a higher concentration of vapour corrosion inhibitor than any other storage option offered to date. The internal divider boxes are moulded from Zerust-emitting blue plastic, greatly increasing the surface area of Zerust corrosion inhibitor.
Attention to detail includes a lid that stands open at half-cock, saving valuable seconds for tournament anglers and recreational fishermen alike. A convenient grab handle and quick, easy-to-operate latches make the Ike Quotient Series more ergonomic and faster handling than conventional trays. The lids are see-through and all three sizes nest together for stacking.
“The new boxes allow me to quickly and easily tailor colour combinations and lure choices to the conditions and locations I am fishing,” added Iaconelli. “I am proud to have had a hand in co-designing this awesome new tackle storage system.”
The line consists of three size options. The 101 measures 13” x 8” x 2 3/8” (exterior) – approximately the same size as the 5000 series Tuff Tainer – and comes pre-loaded with 12 small and three medium Zerust divider boxes. It retails at $11.49 (US).
The two larger boxes are roughly the size of a pair of 5000 series Tuff Tainers placed side-by-side. The 301 measures 16.5” x 13” x 2 3/8” and includes four small, eight medium and eight large divider boxes for a wide array of storage options. It costs $19.99.
The 351 is the double-deep version and measures 16.5” x 13” x 4 3/4”. It is loaded with four large double-deep dividers and four extra-large double deep dividers. MSRP is $29.99.
