I have been looking at the special mate and was wondering which one to get. The one for crank baits says it holds 120 but the one for spoons says 225. If I get the spoon one will I have problems with tangles? I was thinking if I face them all the same way I should be fine. Also will I even be able to put more in the spoon one?

Thanks for any help.
Joe

B & B tackle box is what you want.

I have 4 of the Special Mates....5 inch size for my crankbaits....i have the ones with the dividers....they hold 120. You can put more in the ones with out the dividers but they can tangle.

no comparison in the two when sitting side by side, special mate wins. I prefer the 5225 model, you can store 180 baits in it by skipping every third notch.

Not bad at all and if you stand the dividers straight up before closing you have way less.

+ 1 for the special mate! I received one for Father's day and it is by far the best system I've used for crank baits.
