I *is* a nice case, but I'd have to agree with Bob regarding all the
loose items. Plus, if you have no tubes, you can't play Moon Shot, Ice
Golf, or Drip (some of the cooler dexterity games, IMHO). [Hmmm...
there's only three "requires one or more tubes" games out there...
Winter 2009 IGDC design restriction...? Although I have used them for
"reefs" in Armada....]

Then again, if one stores mids in tubes (and store loose items in
bags/boxes) then one needn't use the plastic insets at all. I don't with
my Dexas Binder Case (rings popped out):

Not saying "Mine is better'n yours; nyah!" Just pointing out how I feel
a storage system should also protect that which is being stored; and if
you get a bad drop and scatter your mids, they are likely to suffer
unnecessary chips or scratches. Heh... just like clay poker chips in
such cases, I reckon. :)

But it *is* a cool-looking case and dazzling presentation, when opened.
