New case for my Equinox

Post by tcawood » Thu Jun 14, 2018 11:50 pm

Seen a few expensive cases recently so I got creative and found this bow case...

I've not cut and moulded the foam interior yet but not sure I'm going to need to as it fits pretty well as is... don't even need to take off the elbow bit!

Bow case from Merlin Archery, £23 plus P&P...

Good job and by comparison to those purpose made detector cases, it was a bargain price.
Good protection and very practical too ::g Regards ss47

Good work!
I was very reluctant to pay the overpriced tag for a purpose made one.
This looks perfect, definitely purchasing cheers ::g

You need the larger, deeper parallel bow case... the 3030 coil will turn to right angles to go in.

Don`t buy the smaller (cheaper!)compound bow case without checking the internal dimensions... rl; rl;


Luckily my GPX fits in the compound case. ::g

I had a quick look on the site and couldn't initially see the said case and most of the others were quite expensive. Search their site a lot closer and you will see the said case and if I am not mistaken, they still have four left. ::g

Forgot to upload image now I've cut the foam and got the Equinox all settled ;-)
