For the money, it's hard to find this quality of fly box anywhere. I really like the slotted foam, helps keep the box organized. The foam is high quality, not that cheap styrofoam [...] that is in other inexpensive boxes. Also the size is perfect for fitting in the outside compartments of my waste bag. Like it was made for it. The only gripe for me is that the latches don't click on snug, and can pop open with light pressure... However this is really a non issue for me since I keep it in my bags outside compartment that zips up tight. It will never be able to open on its own in that compartment.

I'm very happy with my purchase and even more happy that I'm finally using a fish friendly rubber net. It's light, well crafted and extremely durable for the price I paid. If your a thrifty fly fisherman like I'am you won't be disapointed!

I got this rod as a backup to my first tenkara rod (a tenkara USA 13' rod) and the price and quality of this set is great. Since I've used this same model rod (my wife has one), I knew beforehand what quality and action to expect (I'd call it medium flex). The inclusion of the furled leader is a real plus. The flies are nice, especially the classic tenkara flies. For beginners, I would recommend highly finding some tenkara videos on the internet to learn how to attach the line, how to assemble and disassemble the rod, and especially on how to cast.
It's a great rod (with accessories) at a great price.

Smaller than I imagined, but perfect for most flies including a handful of No.5 Wooly Buggers. Lid closes close to the edges of foam, so you can't really put anything with protruding feathers near the edges (unlike deeper boxes), but I just put all my nymphs around the edges. I have ~60 flies (30 in each side) in my box, but they're packed in like sardines. For me, it works great because I wanted a small pocket fly box. Also, I LOVE the clear sides, which I'd never had before this box; I won't ever buy another style.

Clear outer plastic broke on both sides during shipping. The box showed no signs of damage though, so I think just moving around inside was enough to shatter the plastic. The waterproof seal seemed fine (obviously, I couldn't test it) and the foam slots for flies were good. If it hadn't arrived broken I probably would have debated whether to keep it or not because of the overall quality of the materials. It's not as nice as any of the waterproof fly boxes I have from other brands, including more expensive and comparably priced boxes.
