Lakewood products makes the best 'outdoorsman' cases.

Check out:

www.lakewoodproducts.com

I have 11 of them, 1 each for my 3 bows and the rest for fishing and boat electronics.

Why buy a $50 case that won't adequately protect a $1K or more investment ?

If you have a quality bow, put it in a quality case.

Nice case by the way, for a soft sided one. I'll stick with the hard cases myself.

Wheely, I have a hard time believing you own a case made by a company! Shame on you!

I myself also like a hard case though I have the less expensive plano type but if I traveled by airplane I would invest in a high quality case.

I carry at least 1 bow wherever I go, no matter which vehicle I drive and how much room I have to carry one.

Lately I have been really busy but I normally shoot a bow 5-6 days a week and I also travle quite a lot 'by car' with a bow because I shoot in a few different venues all about 3-4 hours from each other.

I'm very particular how my hunting and fishing equipment is stored. A good example are all of my St. Croix musky, trolling, carbon bait casting, fiberglass crankbait, flipping and fly rods. They are all cased in hard cases. All of my Bass, Walleye, panfish and Musky lures are also in Lakewood cases, as are my reel 'collection '....

I learned over the years that too many things can happen to expensive gear when it's not properly cased.

Bunny, if you had your bow in your hand 24/7 and never set it down, I'd agree with you. But you're a working man so I know that is not the case... Get it ? 'Case' ?

And unless you have your bow(s) hanging from hooks from the basement ceiling I'd be willing to bet that they spend a LOT more time in a case than in your hand....

And there is also the convenience factor. Did you check out Lakewood's web site ? Did you see the 'bowfile' case. It will house a fully equipped bow with a loaded and attached quiver. It has built in loops for attaching to a quad or UTV or whatever. When it's 4 AM and you cannot see anything, all you do is open it up, reach down, and head for the treestand. No messing around. When I got my first bowfile I was hooked, not just for the convenience factor but the fact the thing is really strong and well built and thought out. As long as they are in business I will never buy any other case.

All good talking points though. Most of us have our 'insurance' in one form or another. It just depends on how much your deductible and max payouts are...

Honestly I checked this guys history and every post he has ever made has been a crack at Wheely and only Wheely. I am thinking we would be better off without him....

Just a case to go back and forth to the shop with...I've got a big heavy hard case for my long trips and when the bow has to go in the back of the truck...it was also the only case he had that fit my bow and had room for arrows. There was a 25 case but no place for arrows...

Now everyone needs to get back to awing over my new case!!!
