Travel Case for Kessler Pocket Jib

Has anybody come up with a good travel case for the Kessler Pocket Jib? Something that protects well, but isn't absolutely enormous? Pelican doesn't make anything in the proper size range, and I'm starting to think that a hard golf bag might be the way to go. I'd love to hear what you're using for your jibs at the 48" mark.

Re: Travel Case for Kessler Pocket Jib

I've got Kessler's soft case. Definitely not enough protection for rugged work or flights. I haven't looked for anything stronger though. Certainly, you'd want something with wheels.

Also consider what feet you want to transport. I've got the pads, which are super solid, the rubber wheels, which make it easy to move from shot to shot, and the dolly trucks. Each affects the length and width at the bottom. It's time consuming to swap them out too. Keeping the wheels in a separate case is one solution. I don't know the best way to go as each idea has pros and cons.
