    Default Bow cases?

    Just curious as to what bow cases you guys use and what your likes, dislikes and thoughts are? I use the Plano protector series with the pillarlock design. I have been on many hunting trips across the country and I have never had a problem with my sight being knocked around. Just trying to help some of the new guys on how to protect there investments and how to stay away from cases that are not very good or just plain junk!

    I have an SKB Hunter hard case. Flown to Washington state 6 times so far and it's holding up great. A pretty good case for $100. Short, light, and lots of room. Only drawback I've had is stabilizer length can't exceed 6" while on the bow. Have to remove the 10" each time.

    I have a plano SE 44 hard case very well made and no problems in shipping. If you prefer a soft case which is nice for short trips. Talk to elkslayer4x5 or Elkslayer they make and sell them.

    and both of us forgot to mention that all cases are padded with 1/2" foam.

    Default Bow cases?

    10 years old. Bow Guard. "Made in America!" Fairly thick hard plastic, foam cone type pad for bow, velcro straps to hold bow. 4 steel hasps to close lid, two have key lock - never used them. Deep foam arrow holder, two strips - had reglue these a few times when first bought. I like this - easy in, easy out. Holds probably 3 dozen arrows. Shadowcat fits in with a couple inches to spare. Under foam pad for bow I have enough room for a bunch of stuff. Wife says it must weigh 25 pounds.

    Down side, have to take off 30" stabilizer

    just a cheep plano hard case. Works just fine. Can't see spending more on a case than you do on a bow.
