The new parallel limb bow case from Plano

Selecting a bow case can be more problematic than choosing a gun case. To address the difficulty of the wide range of sizes and shapes compound bows come in, long-time outdoor gear storage specialists at Plano have introduced a new bow case.  The now bow case is the Model 1144Plano Parallel Limb Bow Case. It is rectangular and measures 43” x 17” x 9.5”, making it a convenient size and shape for storage in closets, the back of a vehicle or behind (some) seats.

Construction is rugged, it’s built in the USA and the case’s latches (two in the front and one on each side) are cam-action type, so they close and secure the lid tightly. A proven O-ring seal is located around the full perimeter of the case and resists water and dust entry. With an interior depth of 7”, the case is deep enough to accommodate many bows with quivers and arrows. The bow is held in place by positioning the three nylon tie wraps included to any of a number of locations for securement.

According to Plano, the real flexibility of the model 1144 comes in the ability to position Plano’s patented crush-proof PillarLock® system supports as needed to fit whatever bow is in the case. The peg-and-hole design of both the interior lid and bottom allows placement of the two movable pillars so that top and bottom pieces of each are seated together to form a rigid support structure upon closing the case. Dense pluck foam accommodates pillar placement.

The case comes with two other items: a six-arrow holder that attaches to the inside of the lid and a Plano model 1309 archery utility box that is ideal for carrying nocks, field points, string wax and other accessories inside the bow case.

The Plano Parallel Limb Bow Case is currently available in black and yellow only, and features a yellow comfort-grip carrying handle. It retails for $79.99; purchase yours here.
