The Preston Innovations Inbox Hooklength Boxes come under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

TOUGH hooklength storage boxes like the Preston Innovations Inbox Hooklength Boxes are all the rage now, offering a safe and simple way to keep fragile lines and hooks away from the elements.

These two slim cases boast stainless hinges and magnetic closures to ensure they keep working for a long time. Impact-resistant plastic bodies in Preston’s trademark blue also help to protect the stored traces.

A neat, clear plastic sliding panel on the front cover can be used to hold an identification slip. With up to ten different patterns and sizes of hooklengths in each box, this level of detail really helps.

The smaller box has pegs to hold 3, 4, 5 or 6 in. traces, and the longer box will accept 6, 8, 10 or 12 in. hooklengths. Embossed length guides next to each peg help with fast identification in situations where swapping hooklengths is important.

Price: Short £7.99; Long £9.99.
