Default Re: C&F Fly Boxes: Are They Worth It?

I have both C&F and the so called knock offs, which I was reliably informed by the supplier, whose name I won't reveal, came from the same factory.
I have studied both in detail, and apart from the logo missing, I can't see any difference whatsoever.
I put one of the 5 ones in the bath weighted down with a brick to keep it submerged overnight, next day it was as dry as a bone.
Metal pin hinges, very strong, I stood on one, it held my weight no problem.
C&F were leaders in their day, but I wouldn't pay the fancy prices they demand these days, far too many better boxes out there now for a quarter of the price, IMO of course.
