SKB Cases Hunter Parallel Limb Bow Case
Good for hunting
I am strictly a target shooter so I never use a bow-mounted quiver. This case was obviously designed for clearance of a quiver. That makes it about 3" thicker than necessary for a target bow. That empty space in the lid could have been used for more arrow storage mounts, and where the arrows are now carried could have been used for a compartment for accessories.
The interior dimension of 15" is perfect for fitting my Hoyt Ignite bow, which has a 15-1/8" width. It snuggles down inside the case so there is no movement, but also no stress on the cams.
Except for the extra depth of the case for target bows, it is excellent for my Hoyt Ignite, 12 arrows, and a small accessory box.

Great Case-Perfect Fit for Z7
I don't understand the early reviews that say this case won't fit a Z7 or won't fit with a stabilizer on. Obviously stabilizers come in different sizes, so it depends. I have a Mathews Z7 (standard) with a 5" Axion stabilizer. It fits perfectly WITH the stabilizer on AND the quiver on! The proof is in the picture...
That said, the case offers great protection, and holds the bow like a glove without straps. The plastic is not soft and flexible like other cases. The ONLY thing I have noticed is that my nock loop has to twist one way or the other to slide in (not really an issue). I tuck my release over in the corner and it doesn't move. And I put my allen wrenches and field tips or broadheads in a crown royal bag and tuck them in the other corner.
I'd buy another one if I lost this case tomorrow.

by far the best bow case for the money! my maxxis 31 fits like a glove in it, even with the quiver on. holds a dozen arrows fine, although you do have to stagger them for fletch clearance. i think anyone with a stabilizer over 6" could have clearance issues. all in all a fantastic case, and i dont see me ever buying another brand of case. FANTASTIC!

Fits Hoyt Alphaburner
I recently decided to go with this case for my Hoyt Alphaburner. It came down between this one and the Plano Bone Collector. It was a tough decision because both seem to be really nice cases. The Plano looked nicer on the outside and seemed well made but it is unbelievably heavy. The SKB is a ton lighter and has a really nice inside. Arrow holders are a little chincy. Both are made in the U.S.A. this was a must for me. The SKB is a lot smaller as well. It fits a Alphaburner like it was custom made for it and I don't have to take my 6" Fuse stabilizer or quiver off. Only time will tell how well it holds up. I would have to say probably one of the better cases out there for this price range.
