The Guru/Rive ST Limited Edition Pack Seatbox 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.
GURU have joined forces with top match tackle manufacturer Rive to design the high-spec Guru/Rive ST Limited Edition Pack Seatbox.
Boasting six 36 mm-diameter legs, with 25 mm telescopic inserts, I like the low box stance, which means added stability, with easy adjustment possible to ensure that you are fishing from a rock-solid ‘station’.
You’ll find High Stability Footplate clips to lock everything in position, ensuring that your footplate won’t move when it shouldn’t.
There’s also an interesting, patented, open leg system, allowing legs to be removed whilst the box stays in position. So swapping to a longer leg, for instance, is easy.
With this system, the weight distribution of the High Stability Footplate is shared across four seatbox legs, and not two.
This box was always going to be a looker, and with its personalised Guru/Rive back plate, color coded fascia on all the drawers, and brand new, ‘Dream’, handcrafted seatbox cushion, made by master saddlers in Strasbourg, it’s very easy on the eye.
Other neat touches are the open cap system on the legs, for arms and attachments, a non-slip footplate cover, and strengthened draw fronts with ribbed handles.
It comes with a spare underbox cassette and carry lid. A very nice box, it’s available on preorder now from Guru stockists and will be available from July.
Price: Around £1100.
