Up Close: MAP Z30 Seatbox: Making A Good Box Even Better

MAP’s Z30 Elite seatbox has been on the market for a while now. The result of years of technical design and innovation, designed, developed and tested in the UK, the Z30 Elite is based around a beautifully crafted aluminium Z frame that features machined aluminium blocks that keep the weight down, making it extremely lightweight, yet offers ultimate strength.

Another great feature of the Z30 is the stacking system that allows deep or shallow tray units to be stored underneath the box in any order, without the need of a runner on the bottom tray.

Each leg is fully extending and features threaded inserts for accessory attachments. This is also where the modifying improvement comes in. In 30mm diameter these legs are perfect for the majority of commercial fishery use. After all, how many of us really need or can justify the extra outlay on 36mm legs – most commercials have excellent platforms, few anglers actually need or want to set their platforms out in the water and the range of accessories for 30mm legs is vast.

Also, there’s a significant weight saving to be made over 36mms. So, 30mm legs are spot on, and these now feature a rock-steady fixed hand wheel tightening system, replacing the previous 180-degree version. Tighten it and it’s fixed for the duration. Looks great too, all lined up…

Benefiting from an extensive range of drawers and trays, plus the benefit of the huge range of QRS add on accessories, the Z30 remains a benchmark for seatbox design.
