Anyone used Swan cases? Not sure which material to go for..
« on: January 13, 2018, 06:25:28 am »

Hi,
I'm currently looking at getting one of these : -

http://www.swanflight.com/allen-heath-qu-16-flightcase.html

For my QU-16.

Has anyone compared the different finishes?  Like the "hexagrip", "rigid pvc", and "flightpanel"?  I know flightpanel would be the lightest, but I'm just worried it'll feel a bit cheap or flimsy.  There's more colours available for rigid pvc but I don't think that should be the deciding factor.  I'm not too worried about a small difference in price either as it's something I'll own for a long time.

Thanks.

I've used them for 2 cases.  They were great.  I went with the hexagrip finish.  I've never had a problem with them. I used them for an A&H GLD-112 and an A&H C1500.

While poking around on the web I found this:
www.larsonpkg.com/blog/ata-case-panel-hexagrip-abs-laminate

I must also admit that I sometimes end up doing "goober searches" in which I find all the wrong answers to my questions. ;<)

I have two made of flightpanel.
I bought them because they were light (they are) but I would not recommend them for ordinary use unless you need the lightness.

They are a bit flimsy, but now my console and stagerack is under 30/23kg and I can fly with them.

Hmm sounds like rigid pvc or the hexagrip is the way to go..
