    Have Plano Protector

    But I upgraded from Nova to Diablo and it is MUCH more parallel.

    I'm looking for something with a slightly better fit.
    The things I liked about the Plano were;
    - airline luggage certified
    - very reasonably priced.

    I'd like to preserve those two features.

    Anyone using a good case at a reasonable price for their new bow (XT, Trykon, Diablo, etc.)

    No one with a newer bow using a hard case less than a hundred bucks?

    I checked out the Dosko at the local shop.
    It fit, but it did not read anywhere that it was insured for travel.

    The Plano have a pillar system and are airline rated.
    That allows you to put a claim against the airline should anything bad happen.

    This is one of the nicer ones for less than $100. Bow never touches the sides and plenty of storage space.

    I have seen that one MOBOMAN shows in his thread and like it alot, I do not use a hard case at this time though, and have not been keeping up on them.
    I am at the dealer right now and asked him. He likes the new skb case, but sells for $120.

    It seems to be the choice... but GAH.. $120.
    Not going to upgrade at $80 premium.
    Guess I'll make do.

    I Just bought a doskocil double case last winter to fit my 46" a to a 300 rnd bow. Man was that dumb. I wanted an aurora soft case but they did'nt come big enough. Now I don't even shoot that bow anymore because I like my Trykon XL so much that I just put a different scope on it and shoot 300 rnd with that, and with a different scope shoot 3D. So now I am toting around an exspensive double case that I don't really need. (which I only do by the way because my wife would probably shoot me if I bought another one). But enough rambling I have heard alot of goo things about the Plano that moBowman showed. I know a couple of people that have them and they just love 'em

    I went to Bean's last night and checked out the Plano stand up case.
    It was a little tricky closing the case on the stand up case.
    While it looks GREAT for travel, the clamshell style still seems more my cup of tea.
