Heavy duty nylon spiral chain, indestructible, waterproof, rot proof! The Stitching Thread: Bonded nylon that doesn't deteriorate and holds the case together even if an area of stitching is breached. Double Stitching: To first complete the wall and two ends separately and then to join them together giving twice the security at the corners and edges for greater protection and durability.
The Webbing Handles & Seams: 1,500 kilo breaking strength giving enormous load carrying capacity. Handles Vertically Mounted on Seam: Both handle and seams are doubly secure by the former being stitched to 1,500 kilo breaking strength webbing, rather than to the body of the case.

ROCKET FOAM™ is a Closed-cell foam and has a calculated degree of hardness, determined by its density and chosen by us, at the design stage of our guitar cases. ROCKET FOAM ™ density is between 60- 65 Kgs/m3. It is strong enough to walk on without major distortion. Most of the cells or bubbles in ROCKET FOAM™ are not broken; they resemble inflated balloons or soccer balls, piled together in a compact configuration. This makes ROCKET FOAM™ strong and fairly rigid because the bubbles are strong enough to take a lot of pressure, like the inflated tyres that hold up an automobile. The cells are full of a special gas, selected to make the protective value of ROCKET FOAM™ as high as possible, without gaining weight.
