Default recurve/longbow hard case?

Anybody know where I can find a hardcase for a recurve (60")? Also need the same for a longbow(68"). A duelie/double case would be great. I have checked Ebay, but they are few and far between. Thanks!

Make one with an ABS pipe 4" or 6" ,split it lenght way cover the interior with a felt covering glued in,then glue the two part of ABS pipe togetter ,glue a cap at one end ,cover your tube with cloth ,make a cap with hinge and locking tab.

That' sounds pretty slick Taureau !
You could give it a coating of Fleckstone so that it looked like stone , or some snakeskin for ultimate cool factor . The possibilities are endless . Leave it to a Quebequer to find the simple answer ...

It is not realy my idea.
Iread that on an American bowhunting site where someone was looking for a way to send a longbow without damage in transport.
Give credit to American guys for these idea The split in two and felt covering is my idea.

You can cover it with camo tape or any type of tape,

You can substitute a screw-in cleanout for a hinged cap of you go with a pipe. Pipes work well for longbows, but it usualy takes something larger for a recurve.
