Alabama and other umbrella-style bass fishing rigs have earned a permanent place among many bass fishermen’s tackle arsenals, but the wire-frame contraptions have had a problem fitting into anglers’ traditional tackle storage systems. Thanks to Plano, umbrella rig storage is no longer a problem.
The Plano Alabama Rig Box joins the company’s StowAway lineup in its popular 3700 series footprint that has become the standard size for most boat tackle compartments, tackle bags and other tackle management systems.
The Plano Alabama Rig box measures 14″L x 9.13″W x 2″D and is designed to hold up to four rigs in individual compartments. The box features Plano’s famous sturdy, clear polypropylene plastic construction and is fitted with durable and positive-closing ProLatch fasteners.
This specialized StowAway features two unique and adjustable divider designs, patent pending, to protect and organize bass umbrella rigs. One is a V-notch divider that holds the head of the lure in place at one end of the box. The other is a patented star-notch design that collects and secures each wire arm about half way down its length in an isolated position to protect against bending and crimping.
Each compartment holds one umbrella rig of up to five arms. Of course, the dividers can also be arranged in any one compartment to hold swimbaits, along with rigs, in the same box.
The Alabama Rig Box can be used with any Plano, Guide Series or FTO Elite tackle system that holds 3700 series StowAways. The specialty box, available now, retails for around $11.99.
