i like the look of the mosella stuff but can’t work out if I need the 4 or 8 holdall… there’s nowhere near me with any in stock to have a look at, and i don’t know if the 4 will be big enough, but don’t want to buy the 8 if it’s going to be half empty!
in my current holdall, in addition to my made up rods I carry my pole- in it’s maver holdall, with a couple of standard tubes inside it for top kits, plus a couple of extra rod tubes, brolly, net handle etc.
You could argue that the pole with the top kit tubes equates to 5 tubes(?), so would the 4 have enough room? can any Kompact owners give me a clue…?
the 8 is quite a lot more bulky than the 4, but you see an awfull lot more 8’s on the bank than 4’s. The 2 main compartmanmts for carrying tubes, will only really take 3 proper sized pole tubes, so i carry my pole and extentions in one side, and all my top kits, net handle etc in the other, with all my rods in the rod sleeves. In truth this would all fit in the 4, but it would be packed to the limit.
Definitely the 8 – couldn’t get my gear in a 4.
Outer section Pole and extra top Kits, Margin Pole with top kits.
