I have looked at the special mate and am thinking about getting a couple these myself. Looks like a great way to store them.

Crankbait Storage Systems - B & B Tangle Free Bait Boxes (http://www.bbbaitbox.com)

I used to use special mates years ago.
I also use a huge selection of the Plano Elite Series for crankbaits.
Not my bag pictured below. Just a stock photo I found.

Jigpuller, I just use the waterproof Plano 3700 series, I can use the dividers and usually put 2 to a compartment. They get tangled some but it's not a big deal.

I like the looks of that box better then my special mates. The special mates do not hold the baits well, if you fish any that is. And C55's my favorite crank bait is too long for them and is not seated all the way on the hangers / dividers, what's the depth of that box or what size crank can it hold?

Snubbys....that is why they have three different sizes of Special Mates

Yep, got the exact same one and does not hold my baits well, I am always digging thru it and having to pick baits up off the bottom.

Snubby,

That is the issue we had with the special mate on our Salmon boats. After beating and bouncing, I was picking through spoons. Granted, that special mate is different than the one G shows. It just sucked when you had 5000 spoons.

That box I showed is made in several sizes. The guy custom makes them too. Great guy to work with

B and B is the way to go. You can get the single sided ones or the double sided ones that has storage on both sides of the box.

I was going to ask the same question glad you beat me to it. Now what size do I need ??? The big one the more open spaces the more crankbaits I can buy.
