    I am flying to Texas for an archery hunt and normally we drive to all our hunts. My questions is has anyone flown with a Vanguard Saberlock 83c case? It seems sturdy enough and would like to stay way from buying a new case if possible. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    I've been researching SKB just in case mine doesn't work. Thanks!

    I do not have any first hand experience with the Vanguard Saberlock 83c case but I have some friends that have them. After looking at their cases, I would not be afraid to ship my favorite bow rig anywhere in that case, it is one of the best I have seen. I used to use a Pelican case for travel and I sold it and bought the new Plano Bow Guard and love it. The Pelican is a very good case but in my opinion the Plano Bow Guard was just as good and a fraction of the price and I sold the Pelican for more than I paid for it so I had some extra pocket change. I would not be afraid to use the Saberlock at all. Good luck with your trip and better luck on your hunt and don't fret the small stuff.

    Since you asked the Question, that makes me think that you have doubts yourself. If you hold it in your hand and don't think it can handle all the TSA and other baggage handling equipment and people. Then I would be looking for some piece of mind in another case.
    You don't want to get there and not be able to hunt, because you didn't want to spend more money on a case. $200 is a lot cheaper than wasting $2000. I've used SKB also with great success, but there are several solid brands out there.

    SKB is a great case for airline travel.

    being a frequent business traveler, I am always amazed at the rough condition of my luggage after trips. I have several hardsided suitcases that have been completely smashed when they came around the carousel. If you don't think your case will protect your bow if you literally walk outside and throw it 10 ft in the air then don't trust it with the air travel folks
