The Octbox Mk18 Pole Roller comes 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.


POLE anglers are really going to appreciate the capabilities of this new roller from Octbox.

Overcoming problems that other rollers can’t, it’s an improved and more refined version of their very successful 2017 pole roller.

The legs on the roller adjust independently from the contours of the ground.

A bit more compact, this one is also fitted with groundspikes, so that it can be used without legs. More importantly, those spikes allow you to fit the legs differently, to give you more configuration choices.

Picture this scenario: you have a sloping bank behind your peg, and you can’t put your roller at the bottom and ship back efficiently, but putting it at the top of the bank makes it too far away.

Octbox have come up with a rock-solid solution: position the Mk18 Pole Roller halfway up the slope, with vertical front legs driven into the ground and the horizontal back legs spiked into the bank. You can position this roller anything from 4 in. to 4 ft off the ground.

With the option of a single or a double roller, the horizontal roller is rippled, to reduce sideways movement of the pole when you are shipping back.

This is another well-thought-out piece of kit from the clever brains at Octbox. It has been designed on an alloy chassis, with full alloy adaptors, and is available in the next few weeks.

Price: £110.
