    I bought the whole set from em excluding the trauma set(came later date)... Loving the set and prety darn cheap from price point too (Y)

    Loved your demo. I should have known that constructing a fishing pole out in the bush is a lot tougher than I thought (ok, I really didn't think about it very much). I am now motivated to give it a try.
    BTW, the Fishing Mini BOSS contains many useful survival items (can't have too much cordage).
    Keep it up as demonstrating out in the field is a great teaching tool.

    So these items your testing in these videos, are they items that are going to be in the upcoming box? I’m asking because there haven’t been any leaks this month. The main reason I check TheXvid is to see if there’s a new Battlbox Leak!

      Personally, I am torn between getting hints in advance or not getting hints in advance: since I treat BattlBox like a personal survival shopper, I do like surprises; however, I certainly understand where you are coming from (especially since you would be laying out ~$150 per KOTM subscription … there are few things worse than a lame surprise - ok, wet toilet paper while out in the bush is worse).

    Looks excellent. Would like to see the video of testing for that cheap KOTM in Box 55. Keep the quality high, no gimmicks.

    • Jeffrey Meek
      Jeffrey Meek 16 days ago

      @OphirDude agreed!

    • OphirDude
      OphirDude 16 days ago +1

      @Jeffrey Meek - Bear with me for a moment: *ASSUMING* that the Box 55 KOTM is somehow superior to your $8 Rapala, you can purchase ~8 Rapalas for the price of 1 KOTM. The Rapala would have to be extraordinarily lame. But I agree that the Rapala is in reality pretty darn good for real world field dressing fish.
      I have personally concluded that the KOTM is a collector's curiosity (as is the Mantis)

    • Jeffrey Meek
      Jeffrey Meek 16 days ago

      @OphirDude, I completely agree. I'd never use this thing in the field, my $8 Rapala is far superior. Function trumps everything and I'm VERY disappointed in that KOTM. The Mantis is bad enough, but at least well made. This feels and operates like junk and I'd never spend $100+ on it.

      Video Addict made an insightful comment about Box 55 KOTM: with all the nooks and crannies, he thinks the KOTM is difficult to keep clean (especially after cleaning 2-3 trout at a time).

    Love the idea of this box, but would like a smaller one. Like a mini B.O.S.S. fishing kit. Like they did with the fire kit...love that kit.

    To be honest i like the vids but the products yall are putting in battlbox are a bit cheap would like to see better things in it and would love to really see something killer in the KOTM for the 150 paid I feel that you aren't getting your monies worth anymore

  • Overweight Hiker Wannabe

    I don't think this is the mini fishing and hinting boss, i think it's the gull size one.

    • Overweight Hiker Wannabe
      Overweight Hiker Wannabe 29 days ago

      @Tomas Parsons I understand that, it just said Testing the Mini Fishing B.O.S.S. in the title of the video so i was surprised to see the full size Fishing and Hunting B.O.S.S. kit reviewed instead of the one mentioned in the video's title.

      @CURRIN1776 It just said testing the Fishing Mini B.O.S.S. in the title so I was surprised to see the full sized one reviewed.

      Overweight Hiker Wannabe definitely not the “mini”, which is just fishing, and about half the stuff

    I like it, but a small collapsible pole would be perfect with it as a set. I have one I bought at Walmart and keep it in my go bag and Have caught several panfish with it over the years. Eagle Claw Pack-It Spin Combo Telescopic Rod 5.6", 1 Piece Walmart.com

    They talk about five lures. Didn’t see any lures. You got the grubs, but where are the lures? Maybe that’s why you got the spool of braided line, it might have replaced the five lures.

    • CURRIN1776
      CURRIN1776 29 days ago

      Guess they are considering the lures the Jig Heads

      Hey bro, I’ve been getting the BattlBox ProPlus subscription for around 2 years now. Most of the time I’m satisfied with the box, sometimes I’m totally not. I see you’ve given them a 👎🏻. Im wondering why specifically. Do you get any subscription boxes? If so, what do you get?
      Just to be clear, I’m not trolling you. If there’s something out there that’s better I would like to check it out. I’m new to survival gear and stuff like this, but I love getting my Battlbox and I love learning about all of the stuff that goes with it.

    • OphirDude
      OphirDude 16 days ago

      Which Fire Kit are you referencing: the Mini or the Bug Out Supplement (big one)? I concur that there is lots of good stuff in either.
