Once fully open, you can see that it will comfortably fit the 6 arrows in virtually any combination as long as they are less than 32.75 inches long. I tried multiple arrows in varying thicknesses in carbon and aluminum, and they all set securely in the rests with room on both sides of the case. It may accommodate the Ultrathin carbon arrows, although I didn’t have any to test.

Take Care When Loading Broadheads

The Plano Bow-Max Arrow Case markets that it accommodates both broadhead and field point tips on the arrows, and it does. I tried multiple broadheads, and they all fit. But, it is worth noting that if you are packing arrows with broadheads, be mindful of how you lay your arrows in the case. I found that the blades of the broadheads sit closely to the fletching, and when centering your arrows, the broadheads are resting on

the fletching. If you back the nock flush with the case on each arrow, it gives you more separation from the fletching and broad head blades, but it’s still close. You may have to rotate the arrow so the fletching isn’t in contact with the broadhead blade.

Attaching and Hanging Options

Pictured above, you can see the vertical lashing slots on the end of both sides of the case. A few inches further in, you can see the horizontal lashing slots. Lashing isn’t included in the case.

With these slots, you can attach your case to a backpack or another case, ATV, canoe, or whatever you are trying to anchor or attach it to. Another thing I noticed that I hadn’t seen in any of the product descriptions was the plastic hanging loop as well. It isn’t the hardiest hanger. but it will hold up under normal use and will likely come in handy, it did for me.

Accessory Storage a Bit Lean

One thing I did notice regarding function and didn’t really love was the product description mentioned storage space for accessories. I had hoped that would be like a small compartment that could be opened or closed, but I believe Plano refers to the open spot on the ends where the lashing is, and under the arrow shaft in the main compartment. For most things I want to store, I don’t want free floating in my case; there is room for some things but nothing that will be secured to that location as you move the case. I have an archery accessories box, also by Plano, and I will stick to that for my accessories.

Throughout my use of the case, it proved its ability to keep my arrows protected, organized, and easily accessible.
