There has been a call for universal seatbox accessories for years and when the likes of Matrix's brand manager, Ricky Teale, applies his thoughts into a design of such a product, you know that it’s going to be faultless!
A whole array of seatbox accessories are available within the 3D range, which fit 25mm, 30mm and 36mm round seatbox legs!
The system is incredibly trouble-free and expertly designed, incorporating removable inserts that clip inside the main 36mm connection. Each attachment features Matrix's unique snag-free adjustment knuckle. This prevents line becoming wrapped around the wheel when you’re filling up a pole pot, or making rig adjustments – come on, you've all done it! The tightening wheel is easy to grip with wet or cold hands and it’s virtually impossible to overtighten the non-marking system onto your legs.
The Keepnet Arm is available in 9cm and 28cm lengths. Also available are 90-degree cross arms in 12cm and 22cm sizes. This attachment can be used for a raised keepnet position and is ideal for holding a butt rest, pole sock or tulip clip.
Not dissimilar to the cross arms are the Protector Bars, available in single and double-headed versions in 24cm and 40cm sizes. These feature EVA foam fitted around the bars for pole and rod protection. On the double-headed version, both heads have a screw thread to take accessories. This makes the perfect attachment to hold two pole socks when fishing various lengths of pole.
There is also a Groundbait Bowl and Hoop available in round and square formats. These feature zipped lids and are ideal for keeping bait out of the elements.
The ultra-versatile Pole Support is perfect when you’re looking to nail a bait static using the pole. This is covered with ribbed EVA protection and folds away neatly for transportation. A real eye-opening attachment is the Brolly Bracket. People regularly complain about them being unstable and Matrix has certainly solved this issue! It ensures the utmost stability thanks to a twin support bar, stabilising the strain of a brolly over a bigger area of the box leg. It is available in a long and short version, enabling you to fish freely with a pole under a brolly, no matter what! If you're looking to get kitted out with some new box accessories, you'll not go far wrong with the Matrix 3D range!
