Stick Transportation


#1

I’ve nearly managed to snap the joystick off my TE whilst trundling it about in my luggage bag. So I thought eff that noise, I need a better way to take my sticks to tournaments.

Has anyone got any good stick bags/case ideas for a stick as big as the TE?

I wanted an Evo stick bag, but they were sold out by the time I tried :sad:

I remember someone talking about a bag in one of the “Make a luggage check at Evo” threads about something that looked pretty good; sturdy and you can chain it up to shit to stop people teefing if you leave it. Can’t remember what that was called though.

Any help?

You need to get the largest size case. probably should get the corrugated foam for the top and flat one for the sides. Oh I noticed you are from across the pond. Maybe a hardware store has a tool case with the corrugated foam you need.
