Found this guy on the web.

I have one of these frames and can attest its a very durable/strong and lightweight frame.

If I may ask, what did you pay for it? Looks like a quality product.

It is a quality product!
I bought the frame and box...webbing etc when a chap was making them many years ago ...'SEAHORSE tackle' (search this site) if I remember correctly about 500 rondts!

SEAHORSE tackle since flew away....as the years dragged on.

However that frame I still have and has proven well worth the money paid.

My memory is kinda beklopptt....it was called Seahorse....those years we did an extensive chat session over tackle boxes. see linked thread, with all the Ou Rookers....

but anyway here's another pic

Looks OK for price, but I stay away from "Gom Boom", to many people get conned on Gumtree.

I will call Bill soon and check in...this is a fantastic frame that will not break the bank or crack with wear and tear.
My original frame still in very good condition, webbing somewhat worn-out.

I have no idea, but according to that "Gom Boom" ad he currently has stock, so it will most probably be shipped immediately. But hopefully he comes back to you soon with all the anwers.

Cool glad to hear that I spent a lot of time and money to figure it out and very glad to see Bill decided to carry on with it, someone else initially took it over but it never went anywhere. Mambos has some boxes now that I think will make super boxes for the frame. I fitted an MCM Case Guard Ammo box eventually to mine

But I assume they are not comfortable at all if you're going to place it on the H-Frame?

Correct 100%, but with the H-Frame, support on back and waist strap ect, it will be much better, should you take a walk on the beach. So I will have 2 x set ups like this, say one for mix fishing and then one for "real" fishing....LOL, or something like that.

Pylstert.....I did not know you where involved there?

The boykey that was marketing them never answered anyone's mails/calls.

Cannot find the thread we all chatted on so many moons ago..... :(

My frame/box and fitted side bags I got from Ebs on this site.

As mentioned, the box and webbing has gone AWOL, but the frame has stood the test of time and is still 100% secure without any crack or split tubing.
Plastics for Africa discontinued the small Jimmy box we all used for years and introduced a larger and deeper box, which is overkill.

I do believe the smaller box has come back on the market again.

Type a long msg / reply...blood shitty rig based internet wiped it......Hmmmffff, Pylstert, my bru I also did not know your were involved.... An "old roker" like us...cool man, should have said so from the start bra!! All good your side? See my comment regarding "GOM BOOM" wasn't a dig at anybody, I am just scared of GOM BOOM !!! See we cannot really make proper calls from the rig to verify the sellers status ect... so by doing it via email, is a no go for me!!!

OK....now I see you okes are talking about boxes, my SeaHorse box is in it's MOER, so what do you okes suggest as in doing a refurb - I will have to double up on boxes, as I will have now 2 frames, I agree, I do not want an overkill box, size like the SeaHorse box, will be fine, just more tuff / stronger, the fitting / trimmings / bells & whistles I will sort... Assist please.

What about one of these?https://www.outdoorwarehouse.co.za/product/outdoor-warehouse-ammo-box-with-a-high-lid
Maybe you can attach a storage pocket under the lid or a trace pouch.

You may be laughing, I recon the toilet cistern is a good idea, as the plastic boxes you get at Mambos/Plastics 4 Afrique are really rubbish and don't last all that long. The Big Jim box outlasts them all and is definitely the best option.

The divisional box that tackle Tactics utilises on his frames ~ you end up losing the fastening handles...(sorry cant find a pic)so that's a choice worth considering twice.

Anyway ::tight:

Not laughing at all, I once a biker that made "saddle bags" out of it, nicely painted ect.... like a poorman's easy rider / road tripper storage boxes....He had nice designs ect.... I couldn't believe it.

Yes, I would rather settle for a smaller box, like what the Old SeaHorse one came out with (remember I told you mine is crack) - in the same size, but more sturdy etc, Somebody did mention ammo boxes? The type you can buy at an 4x4 / outdoor shop? I will rather look at that.

I believe you, the toilet cistern seems a viable option! can also be found in black!!

The Big Jim 25ltr box is strong and versatile.
The ammo boxes remember have clips on all corners and becomes a hassle, also noted those plastic ammo box clips become dislodged and fall off and then you are back to square one again.

KISS principle works here.

I catch your "drift" but I still have the "guts & bakke & trays" and some added goodies, from the SeaHorse plastic box, and it will not fit into the cistern. Anyway, with ammo box it will, also I know the clips you are referring to on the box, again no issue, I will mount with strong cable ties, also cable tie idea, can be incorporated as hinges, thus no need for those clips. Not a major issue, agreed "KISS" and keep it cheap.

Go look at Luke's page....

This is a very comfortable bag to carry, with many add-ons, trace pouch, ditty bag etc.
See the compartmentalised (jassus) plastic box utilised.
although quite a good idea, becomes a pain in the groin(imo) & the clips that connect the upper to the lower become dislodged and end up drifting in the ocean.

Looks cool, referring to "Luke's goodies" - again see in my case, I will now have 2 x H-Frames, yes sounds like an overkill or might to some? Not so, for me, my boys are no 9 + 11yrs old, so basically - one set up can serve as an "all in one" for the 3 of us for the beach, the other, for when I overnight on my ace, I have quite a few set ups like that (different bags) one for bass / fresh, 1 small for spinning, 1 small for reef, of course different in size these, I have a lot of tackle and pouches, so no need to scratch and repack for each trip, should it be a different application..... well some of the pouches / bags / box ect, I got for very cheap years ago, or bought second hand. Tackle Junkie? hmmmmfff, perhaps....LOL, not really - just know when I see a luck! For now, I will stick to the ammo box, idea I spoke about yesterday, and then just transfer / mount all the stuff from the old "SeaHorse" box, on the ammo box.

Those boxes are nice but the lids are prone to breaking

Supercool, however as mentioned I will need 2 x boxes, a bit more tuff, what do you suggest? Do you have pics?

Sorry Serra I am no longer involved. The best is to go to one of these big plastic shops and get a box or alternatively I see you looking at putting a Teza or Orca box on which is a very good idea

Yes, agreed, I have 2 of those, so if I cannot source a sturdy box, I will go the Orca / Teza way, it's my plan to fix at least one with an Orca / Teza. As mentioned the boys are now 9 & 11yrs....and ready to go, and you know when we were "lighties" we wanted our own stuff, best I rig one for them to share. As they have light weight bags for the river, but they are not geared for an outing or an overnight trip. I usually take one of the okes that works there by me as well (to carry the safari / pacific chillers with beers....LOL)
