    Im looking for the most durable and weather/dust proof hardcase that will fit my tac15 with optimizer and Nikon 50mm monarch scope.

    Pelican called me last week to discuss the need for this.

    They'll be sending me a prototype as it is completed.

    Good.

    Any thoughts from anyone as to what dimension assumptions Pelican should make.

    For example, scope size, with or without HHA mount, etc.

    Make the case big enough for the HHA set up but sell it with a foam insert that fits a scope but has perforations in it so it can be easily modified for the HHA set up then everyone will be happy.

    This is great news!
    I've been holding off on buying a hard-case until I could research it a little more.
    I'd definitely buy one.

    I recommend that we consider that we are going to travel with this case and we need to make sure that there is a storage area for all the components so tha twhen we arrive at our destination all we have to do is extend the butt stock, attach the quiver, and add the bolts and go hunting. I think the case should make accomadations and and is have the ability/flexible enought to the following for a HHA with a 50/56mm objective scope lens and area for bolts and broadheads that have no chance of coming in contract with anything except the storage area during transport. Just my 2 cents. The out side of the case should be easy to clean if it was to get muddy/dusty on back of a side by side and must be able to protect the crossbow during transport either by side by side or air transport.

    IMHO, soft cases are next to worthless and give you a false sense of security about protection.

    I shot Pelican a e-mail about a month ago regarding a hard case for the tac. I expressed that there is a large market out here. I hope thay make it scope friendly along with storage space:) I can't wait to see it, great idea!
