Tackle Storage Review

Albackore’s Reel Transports help organize and protect precious tackle at home and on the go (continued)


Operation: Not a lot of explanation is required in terms of the operation of these transports. The bags make use of a combination of zippers and Velcro dividers to organize all your tackle. Two zippers on the outside secure the top flap securely shut. Once you unzip the top you are greeted with a padded interior that is divided with an assortment of Velcro inserts. You can use all the inserts for maximum reel storage, or choose to use none of them if you want to provide more protection for 3600 sized Plano boxes. The ability to customize each individual reel pocket allows you to store and protect reels of just about any size.

The small and Medium sized bag survived many rides in the back of the truck

The dividers are well padded, and none of our reels ever got as much as a small scratch during transport


The lid of the transport has a zip mesh pocket that is great for holding bags of plastics or tools


Durability: The Albackore Reel Transport is built like a quality piece of luggage. While the frame isn’t rigid it is very durable. Even when under a lot of pressure the sides of the reel transport will not easily collapse, protecting your reels from being crushed. While I wouldn’t check the reel transport into baggage when flying it will do a great job protecting your reels if shoved into your luggage. Where the reel transport really stands out is on charters where having a backup reel can make the difference between having a great trip and having one cut short prematurely due to reel failure. The Reel Transport can be stowed anywhere on the boat and will protect your reels even if tossed around. When coming to and from charters I would toss the bags into the back of my truck for the trip home. After a year of use we haven’t encountered any problems with broken zippers or loose threads. The overall construction of the Reel Transport is top notch and each will provide season after season of protection.
