Horrible, but with potentialIt's a great idea!! for me it's exactly what I was looking for.
Like the adjustable dividers, well built.
Cons, which unfortunately make product a total faillure.
Dividers, are attached to each other. you have to spend time to separate then from the mold, as they are tied together.
To fit, you need a utility knife to clean each bin divider.
plan 20 minutes to prepare dividers.
Once you have dividers fitting nicely, and you put little parts in, then you try to get one out, the divider pops out. this is slippery plastic, and dividers just lift, causing small parts to mingle with each other, and then you can't push the divider down. Aggravating to say the least. I glued them, and now they are not adjustable anymore. special glue is needed for this plastic as its hard to glue, Loctite sells a glue primer, 2 part process just for this application.
Dividers are too high, all have to be cut down to insure lid closes as tightly as possible, and (sometimes) you have to cut the corners to make them fit so the lid will close all the way, without hitting dividers. IF the divider is up, then small parts can run into each other.
Nobody on planet earth would give this product 5 stars, It's poorly designed, and needs to be corrected, and sold for $20 instead of $10, as me and others would pay for a revised product with such great potential.

Sturdy, and DIY friendly.When it came time to find a better solution for carrying my lures while wading, I figured a little DIY was in order. The choice of a base box to build around was a no-brainer. Plano's CDS series just feel so much more overbuilt compared to their other offerings, and the nearly infinite adjustability of compartments goes a long, long way in keeping with the minimalism needed when you can only take what you can carry. A quick few holes, some nylon webbing, and a few stainless nuts, bolts, and washers later, and I've got a simple wading box that might well outlast it's owner.
