The Plano is a hard plastic case that fits most compact limb compound crossbows. It has a pretty cool design and is definitely rugged enough to take some abuse. It has hardcore clips with the ability to lock them with a lock for security. The inside has awesome foam pads that provide great protection and a super snug fit. I have personally handled this case, as my buddy has this exact one. He actually added some extra padding for a more secure and snug fit. The extra padding did not take away from some space in the front end of the case which allows him to carry extra lashing. He is also able to place 3 extra quivers inside the case without any issue. It seems like a great option for security and protection for my crossbow; however, I would also like a little more storage capability.
The Plano spire can be stored flat or on its side. The case has little legs on the sides so you stand it up without tipping. The case is fairly simple to carry and the weight doesn’t seem to be an issue when I tested it. There doesn’t seem to be many downs side with this case. I had read some other reviews and it appears it fits most but not all crossbows with a scope. My barnet Recruit seems to fit it without issue with the scope. Some issues that others had were with the latches being busted. Again, the one I tested which my buddy owns doesn’t appear to have this issue either. Overall, I think this case is a good buy for the price and the protection it offers. I think I am going to buy this case for when I travel so I feel secure with having it on a plain etc…
I think this case has many benefits and is rugged enough for me to use for trips without compromise. I would recommend this case for anyone looking to invest in a case particularly for traveling. It again does not provide for a ton of storage but if I am traveling, then I have already packed whatever else I needed otherwise. If you are interested, then you can check it out on Amazon here!
