    Hey everybody,

    Just picked up a Plano jumbo airliner rod case for fishing rods for $80. My self made eub fits with its stand and gig bag. After a long search, I'm stoked as hell. I wanted to share this with y'all as I know how hard it is to find protective cases for these things.

    Do you have any pix?
  3. Probably great for a "stick" style EUB, but those with a bit of a body might not work with the 8" diameter. I'm still leaning towards a snowboard travel case for my latest home build.

    I picked up a Sportube Series III snowboard case for my Yamaha SVB-100. Everything fits well. I haven't traveled with it yet though.
  5. Looks like a good option, and it appears to be adjustable in the length direction. I may have to get serious about one for my home build.

    That may be thin enough to fit in a series II. I like the III, it is well constructed.
