    Better than the Plasma?

    I can get a new carbon monarch for $48AUD, should i risk it? ie saggy bottom. Loved the black monarch on my 8.
    IMO the pathfinder is better than the plasma as the back of the phone is way better supported. The only back support with the plasma are those tiny rubber dots.

    I love my Monarch cases (saggy bottom and all) but I never use them. The Best Buy blacked version and the carbon fiber are sweet looking cases.

    You not giving me much hope The carbon monarch is $1 cheaper than a pathfinder so a good price, i can't even remember if my 7/8 monarch had a saggy bottom.

    Finally someone speaking the truth.

    What happened to the other case thread?
    Looks like this is still it - just had another name change.

    PS - @blaine07 Loopy pictures coming tomorrow! I’ve had some family issues this week and haven’t had time.

    Today I received these:

    iCarez [Full Coverage Tempered Glass + Tray Installation] Screen Protector for iPhone X 5.8 Inch (Case Friendly) Highest Quality Easy Install [ 2-Pack https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077NVK2R4...mUvbUpU3037307

    I HIGHLY recommend these. Alignment tray is nice, lay good with not spotting or specs. They go basically to edge of Catalysts and Symmetry etc. Super good bargain at ~$5 a piece. I’d take pics but not much to see. With a case you basically can’t tell their is a protector on; amazing fit. It takes some attention away from the notch too by not cutting out around it. FaceID still works perfect too.

    Nice and clear?

    edit. Hope so just ordered can't get them here, although $21aud with postage still cheap. Using a spigen which is average.
    Can you stay off this thread man you are costing me

    Back using my Caudabe Sheath. Feels like putting a glove on this case, perfect fit, slim to hold, excellent grip, buttons are perfect, easy to get on/off.

    They claim 6ft drop protection is my only concern, not that i want to test it.

    Yes sir. These are good. A real bargain. Perfect figment when they say case compatible. Not sure I’ve ever been quite this impressed with a protector. My apologies that i didn’t see your call sooner or I’d got here for you sooner. Long as you ordered exactly what I linked to, the 2.5d case compatible with alignment tray you’ll be happy. Or you mean you were going to order but can’t?

    Sorry I’m costing you money. If you give me long enough I can save you some because I’ve about tried it ALL. Still got a few cases left to buy. Caudabe you favor is on my list LOL. Had one for 7+ and really liked it. With you though, that drop protection rating is... ambitious.

    Yes got the one you linked to.

    Read the reviews on Caudabe people saying they have survived drops. It's worth it even to Australia, they have 15% off now or a code for 20% still works i think = NEWSTUFF. Good luck

    Good. I genuinely hope you like the iCarez protector as much as I do. I’ve spent a LOT more on protectors than this and been a LOT LESS ecstatic about them. Love how this one goes practically right to the edge of my cases. Some with margin so small id compare it to paper width and not even visible to naked eye. Other than speaker cutout at top cant tell its existence— kind of pulls attention away from “notch”.

    I’ve had Caudabes in past and definitely had a good experience with them. My problem now is the one I’ve been wanting to order has been out of stock/sold out for quite some time now. 🤦🏼*♂️

    ^ @Blaine cant quote you for some reason.

    I am sure i will and will at least get a perfect fit. If not i know where you live

    I can get a UAG carbon monarch for a great price but the saggy bottom comments are a worry, was the 8 like that can't remember i did have one.

    I have a Caudabe Synthesis navy in my cart with 20% off

    Lol I hope it don’t resort to you using my location against me LOL.

    On UAG I had for 7+, didn’t have a 8, and I don’t recall it being saggy... I’ve had so many cases though lol. 🤦🏼*♂️

    Yea just really want that silly red one. Been out of stock so long. Ugh

    Ok, I couldn’t help myself. Still love my Element Case Formula. It’s a bit heavy but I do love the carbon fiber. I just ordered a Carved Case, Ironsides series made out of 18th century naval timbers from the Charlestown Navy yard. I do love unique cases with high end materials. This one looks really cool. Has anyone tried Carved before?

    That protector is definitely a must buy. Even with my doofus install I managed to get a beautiful result. Highly recommended. Here’s the vid I made of my install. (You may want to lower the volume as I’ve heard people were annoyed with the music I added):

    Yea man they’re a bargain for sure at $5 a piece. Mine laid perfect, no specs, no bubbles no dust. Can’t even tell it’s on.

    As far as your list I’d stay away from the Pitaka since it has no lip to protect the screen and as far as I recall you already have the carbon Evutec like mine so why bother? The UAG Monarch just isn’t good and especially for that price. I’d only go for it if I’d find it for less than $40. And as far as the Element I’m also considering going for another even though I already have their current top tier BlackOps case. Reason being that they are offering to make custom Formula cases and I’m itching toward a black and blue custom combo with gold buttons.

    Has anyone tried the Pelican Shield? I can tell it’s quite massive but I always have at least one case for extreme protection in my collection but so far haven’t gotten one for my X. This looks like it could fit the bill.

    Yeah in my head I’d already decided Pitaka is overpriced compared to Karbon. No button coverage either.

    Yeah UAG silly expensive. Definitely agree with that. I never could agree on color is why I don’t already have one lol. And was hoping saggy bottom would get addressed and fixed before I get one.

    I had no idea Element was doing anything custom but for what those things cost they should be custom LOL. Like the one I have for 7+. Just so expensive I’m afraid I’ll mess it up LOL.
