The Plano Hybrid Hip StowAway Box: Winner of the Best Tackle Management Award at the AFTA Show.
↑ The Hybrid Hip StowAway from Plano features three conventional removable trays.
↑ Like the Hybrid Hip StowAway, the Hybrid Hip Tray Box offers an 'unparalleled' level of sophistication and functionality, says Plano.

When it arrived at ICAST for the first time in July, Plano’s new 723700 Hybrid Hip StowAway Box had already been acclaimed as a winner.

The company’s distributor ‘Down Under’, J.M. Gillies, had already picked up an award for the product at the Australian Fishing Trade Association (AFTA) Show just a month earlier.

The Hybrid Hip StowAway, alongside another newcomer being shown at ICAST – The 723300 Hybrid Hip Tray Box – add an ‘unparalleled’ level of functionality and sophistication to the traditional, telescoping three-tray design, says the Illinois-based company. Instead of opening the chest into a trio of fixed and slotted trays, anglers are given creative licence to customise the arrangement.

Plano VP of Engineering, Ryan Kleckner, says that versatility is what makes the Hybrid Hip Box so unique. “Instead of being categorised as a top-loading or front-loading tackle box, they do both. You can access individual trays without opening the top or open it up and let the trays telescope out for total access.”

Each tray doubles as a drawer. You simply open the clear outer door like an oven and access your chosen tray. Open the top of the tackle box and the same trays are accessible.

Both durable boxes offer generous belly space for housing fishing line, bags of plastics, pliers and even more Plano StowAway utility boxes.

The Hybrid Hip Tray Box features three conventional, removable trays, while the premium Hybrid Hip StowAway Box comes with a three Plano ProLatch™ 3700 utility boxes (14” x 9.13” x 2”) sporting four to 24 customisable compartments.
