Hard case for Matrix 380?

Post by Z-Rider » Mon Feb 19, 2018 7:44 pm

Looking for a list of hard cases known to fit the Matrix 380 bows. Have a soft case but prefer the hard case for traveling to our property 2 hours away.

Thanks in advance!

I’ve got a Plano Bow Max for my 405 works good with that.

Do you want to take the limbs / riser off, or leave it fully assembled? I made a case for my Matrix 380 that I'm very pleased with (it may be ugly but it sure functions nicely!), but it'd only be practical to make one if you want to disassemble. There are pictures in this thread:

Good luck,

I was wondering if that one would fit. Most are telling me the Manta is the one I need but it appears to be huge.

I’ll check dimensions on the Bow Max in the AM.

No intentions to disassemble to put it in a case.

I tried the Manta but I agree with you it was a lot bulkier than the Bow Max was. I was lucky when I bought the 405 they had both cases in stock at Field & Stream and I was able to try them both out and they both worked the bow max was just smaller I believe the 405 is pretty close to the same size as the 380 its just a matter of personal preference though.
