Hi guys,

 

Looking to get rid of my massive, metal Arri 2k case (it's over 4' long and weighs almost 20kg by itself!) and replace it with a more streamlined Pelican case, and I was wondering if anyone had recommendation for case models?

 

It'd need to hold the two Arri Blondies (with barndoors attached), 2x dichroic filters, and a couple of spare globes.

 

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

 

Cheers,

 

Mark

You used to be able to get fibreboard cases for them, I put my blondes in individual cases because they're larger than the redhead. You can now get poly cases made from high density polyethylene, made to you own specification. Here's one manufacturer http://www.trifibre....poly-cases.html

 

Looking at Pelican cases, the military section has a foot locker and pallet ready cases You should be able to get a flight case manufacturer to fit a suitable interior with dividing walls.

Thanks Brian, those look handy. I've just stumbled across the Pelican Storm iM2975 and that looks to be a very neat fit for the two lights, so I think I'll give that a try.
