Default Best hardcase?

Looking for a new hardcase because American Airlines obviously doesn't think very much of the cheapo one I have now. What do you guys have? Do you like it? Is it strong? Good customer service from the manufacturer?

I'm looking at the SKB rectangular case at the moment.

American Airlines done a number on my cheapo case a couple of years ago. I had my bow all velcro'ed down and packed. After arriving in Moline, Il opened up the case and found the velcro straps were ripped from the case. Well I spent a little (Lot) more dnd bought a SKB double bow case. It has held up well against the airlines demolition crew.

SKB is the case of choice.
BTW, I only typed SKB and it said my reply was too short, had to be at least 10 characters

You might also look at tuffpak. I've had a few SKBs and if you are going to travel annually, they will take a beating. I recently changed over to a tuffpak based on a recommendation. It allows you to pack your bow along with some clothing all in the same container. Very sturdy. Best of luck.

I really like SKB. However, I also own a Vanguard that I like a whole bunch as well. I had to go to the Vanguard when I purchased a Katera XL and it would not fit in my SKB. Both companies back a great product.

Thanks for all the input guys, I'll do some number crunching and get it figured out.

I got rid of my SKB and got a Kalispel. Now I have the best.

I checked out Lakewood bow cases at the ATA show this past January and they
sure were nice. Only knock I had was the weight of them but with what you have invested in your equipment you can live with it.

Check out Pelican cases too. They are pretty much "bullet proof".
