    Rare BB Pearl Case

    Advertisement



    I have a great case but as I am always fooling around with my BB I do a lot of battery pulls which means I have to take the case off. Snap Skin cases eventually weaken if you keep removing the BB from them. They are designed to be put on and rarely taken off.

    So I went to get another case like the one I had and found that it does not exist! Here are all the features it has that I cannot find all in one place:

    1. Skin Case
    2. Leather coated (had bad luck with the finish peeling on rubberized ones)
    3. No film over the screen (find that these rub against the screen and damage it anyway!)
    4. The belt clip: I like to clip it to my belt and like the locking swivels (see pic) This model is special cause the knob is located in the center, this allows me to keep it horizontal so it goes with the contour of my belt. If the BB hangs vertically I find it gets in my way. This knob is high quality, the others that have little spikes are cheap crap, they do not mount and dismount smoothly




    If anyone knows where I can get another case like this, let me know! I haven't found anything that looks even close to as good. Money is no object.

    Doesn't look like Vaja has a case for the 8100.

    This one could work for you:

    Thanks for the correction, Cherri. I swear I didn't find them when I was on there earlier today! Could be I was trying to do too many things at the same time!

    They are, indeed very nice cases!

    they do, you just have to add the option for it. they also show an animation on how the clip is inserted and removed.

    The problem with this case is the knob doesn't lock in different positions, it is only designed for the BB to hang vertically, its a lot more out of the way if the pearl hangs horizontally...in this case it should be located in the center, vaja locates the knob close to the top. The top of the case being open is also a turn off, its more like a leather sleeze than a case. Am I wrong?

    Got the body glove case. The clip is ok, but the case it nothing more than rubber. Doesn't fit the pearl well...don't recommend.
