What is this?

Recommended Posts

What is this case called and what is it used for?  It has the same on both sides and has a lid that opens and snaps shut.

i used to have one many years ago. wish i still had it

its an old style tippet spool dispenser

the spool gets installed on the center peg and the tippet exits through the grommets on each side of the box

the green pad is removable

it should hold four tippet spools. 2 on each side

Yes, they were a neat little item.  Surprised someone still doesn't make them.

It's an organizer not a space saver. A quick look easily shows that contraption takes up at least 30% more space then 4 spools of tippet. Probably why you don't see them much anymore. I click my spools together (another innovation that relegated the box to not needed status) and hang them from a wader strap with a doubled over short length of 550 cord and a 25 cent cord lock.
