Title: Hunting bow case
Post by: O.L. Adcock on October 13, 2005, 07:38:00 PM
Well, guess you can stick a target bow in it but look at what Rod "Shoot08's" has been up to! This is the finest TD bow case I've seen yet. Heavy gauge Cordura outer, fleece lined, seperate limb pockets with ties so they don't fall out. 4 Velcro/Cordura internal pockets to hold tabs, gloves, strings/stringers, and a bunch of other stuff. Adjustable straps, carry handle, and a shoulder strap. Hunting Alaska, a feature I like, it FLOATS! Good job Rod!....O.L.

Nice case.  And that is one freaky riser...I really like it!  Hope to try one someday.

"Longbows won't compete with recurves"

Thats what everyone was telling me....then all of a sudden, they started telling me...you can't enter the recurve class any more  ;)  

 Thanks, O.L. the case was designed for the roughest county on earth...plus all the mishaps that can happen getting there!

Heres a pic of a case with a 5# bow inside, that I threw in the creek.

I hope to have a website up and running in a few days and will have special "intoductory"pricing on the first 50

Thanks to Sacketts suggestion, the cases will be called "Safari Tuff"

Heres another pic with one of O.L,s beauties.

Very nice, now how do I get my 1 piece 62" in there?  :knothead:    :bigsmyl:  

Seriously, best of luck with it. It looks like a great product.

Man Rod, What's that funny looking thing at the bottom?? Bug spray will take care of that!  :) ....O.L.

Very Nice!  Do the straps allow for an arrow tube/box to be strapped to the side?

How do I get my switchbak in one of those.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

That looks like one handy satchel.    :thumbsup:

Losthawg, loosen the limb bolts enough, it will fit eventually! I think Rod has plans for other versions/models, at least I hope so!  :) ....O.L.

I just saw this thread, and just received my own case from Rod yesterday.  It's simply the best bow case I've ever come across, period.  Several different bow cases have some excellent redeeming features, but each also has some limitations - such as too little padding or too short for longbow limbs or not enough storage space, etc.  Rod's case incorporates the best features from all the others and, so far, I can't identify any weaknesses.

The "taco-style" case makes it extremely easy to segregate limbs from risers & accessories.  It's long enough to accomodate longbow limbs, but easily accepts recurve limbs.  The riser section will safely and securely hold any riser, from a conventional three-piece takedown riser to one of our ACS-CX aluminum target risers (shown in O.L.'s original post).  I like the fact that there are enough pockets so that you can segregate limb bolts and bezels from strings, and still have more storage for other accessories or tools.  Very, very cool.  However, the best part from my perspective is how bomb-proof the case is.  This is one tough case, from the cordura exterior to the extra-thick padding.  The fact that it floats is a nice feature for folks who travel by boat or raft.  

Comparing this case with any other soft-sided case isn't fair, because it's in a class by itself.  Way to go, Rod!

John

Rod, if you can hear that tapping, it's my foot while waiting for the stretch limo version.  ;)

Very interesting!! Looks and sound great. May have to get one of the "introductory" ones for my take downs then wait for the longer version. Keep us posted on the yet to be created web site.

Post by: SHOOTO8S on October 14, 2005, 10:38:00 PM
Thanks guys! The one piece case is on its way, in a strung and unstrung version...just have to work out a few details....like the 3pc Takedown case, the one piece cases will be "bomb proof" and will float! I want to get it right the first time !

Jason V....yes thats the plan!....an attachable arrow case, that piggy-backs on the main case....it will also carry most Traditional bow quiver's. I plan to offer the strap on arrowcase in the near future.

I'll be on the lookout too.  I'd like to have a presentable case for my Great Plainsman 64" one piece longbow.

You done started it Shoot, now go wid it.    :bigsmyl:

Post by: WaKeDa BT on October 15, 2005, 10:21:00 AM
Rod, when you get the stretch model done, I need two. Need a field tester?   :D

Actually, I have three or four other buddies that will need them too. Hollar when you are ready and when you know how the pricing will look so I can pass that info along.

Post by: snakewood3 on October 15, 2005, 10:02:00 PM
Rod, Looks like great stuff. Wouldn't have expected any less from you though. Reckon' you could get with O.L. and make one up for the 3 piece, 2 sets of limbs he's working on for me ? Hope those blades are serving you well. Also, I'm gonna' need some strings for the same package, 2 for each limb set. Let me know what you come up with.

I saw the prototype case afew weeks ago and it was very nice. It's the best takedown softcase design I've seen in a long time.

Any word on when these will be buyable by the public?
Title: Re: Hunting bow case
Post by: Snakeeater on November 16, 2005, 06:29:00 PM
How much and where is the website?
Title: Re: Hunting bow case
Post by: Bill Turner on November 17, 2005, 11:17:00 AM
I find it interesting that Snakeeater is the first Tradganger to ask "How much?". I gather they have not been priced as of yet. Another question that needs to be asked is "Is it airline approved?". I doubt it, since it is not a hard case, but any of us who travel with our equipment know how important it is to have a good, sturdy travel case. Congrats on what appears to be a job well done. Count me in on the first 50 if it is not price prohibitive.  :thumbsup:    :thumbsup:    :thumbsup:    :thumbsup:

I got my case yesterday and all I can say is WOW! It is an exceptionally well made and engineered case.

I haven't had a chance to try it out yet but it looks to be about perfect.

This is a first rate case.

Don't get Rod and O.L. together on this!!  There'll be a 2-3 year wait in getting one
LOL

O'B, That happened long before my post. BUT the bow case ya' don't have to wait on. If you think O.L.'s wait is long take a look at Randall Made Knifes....54 months...at least..Regards, Chuck
