Plano Manta Crossbow Case
Great Crossbow Case
Purchased this case on sale for my Barnett Ghost 400 Crossbow. The Ghost fits in the case with room to spare. Locations for additional bolts and quiver with bolts attached in the lid of the case and locations provided for additional gear such as broad head cases, bow stand, if collapsable, and maybe a shooting stick. Plano should have provided additional straps for accessory cases. Case is well built. I am somewhat concerned with the latches wearing out but we will see if this happens down the road. I kept the scope cover that was packaged with my crossbow from Barnett and placed it over the scope for added protection with room to spare. The instructions on placement of the foam padding provided was somewhat confusing but after playing with it I finally got it all placed where the crossbow is secure and protected. Just to be on the safe side I used weather strip adhesive to keep the foam padding in place. Straps hold the crossbow secure and prevents movement. I would advise that if you purchase this case ask the pro shop to assemble it for you. The case it self is large and heavy. Once the crossbow is placed inside it is even more heavy. I would have given 5 stars if it was not for the size and weight of the case. Other than that this thing should be called a crossbow vault instead of a crossbow caes.

Great all around case
I purchased this case with some reservations. I have a Horton Vision 175, which is a reverse limb bow. I bought this case as it is the only hard case that I could find where my bow would fit. Not only did it fit, but the case is adjustable so just about any larger bow should fit with no problem. The one issue is that this case is HUGE! Otherwise, it has the space and versatility to get the job done.

I just purchased this case for my Barnett Quad 400 and it fits perfect. This case is well thought out and will protect my crossbow and scope much better than a soft case. It is a must if you intend on hauling your crossbow around on a atv or utv. Great shoulder strap also.

good crossbow case
I purchased the Manta for my new Barnett Ghost 350 crossbow. I like the fact that the tail of the case can be moved to fit different length crossbows. It is on the bulky side, but it will definitely protect my crossbow during travel and for storage. The only bad thing, I guess you could call it, is that you cannot seem to order more inside utility straps or bolt holders. It would be nice to have more storage capability. The instructions are a little dark to read as well. Once you get everything sorted, arranged, and screwed down, it functions great.
