Help me develop new speargun hard travel case

Hello,

I am hoping that you all can help me figure out if I should create this product. I recently went to hawaii and wanted to bring my spear gear. When I searched online for a travel case for my gun and fins so that they would be protected, I found that the cheapest hard travel cases were ~$200. That is insane. Gear is so expensive already I am not trying to drop that much money just to get my stuff somewhere else. As a result, I passed on bringing my gear. I am hoping to create a hard travel case for cheap, but I need some info from the spearfishing community first. If you could please answer the following questions, even if you would never buy something like this, it would be super helpful! Can you please answer the following:

Would you consider bringing your gear to some other location via plane?

If no, why not?

If yes, would you consider buying a hard case?

Which of your gear would you want to ensure is protected by a hard case?

What do you think is a reasonable price for a hard case?

Is there any specific feature that you would like you

The Sport Tube series 2 is just as important as my gun and fins when traveling... Last thing you want to happen is spend thousands on a trip just to have your gear damaged.

You could have borrowed or rented someone's sport tube

Sport Tube 3 worked great for me, you just have to thoroughly check the baggage terms. Aeromexico got me for $150 one-way to Cancun for it because I declared it as "fishing gear" and it was an international flight... they then proceeded to lose my bag and I'm negotiating compensation with them (which they're being unsurprisingly cheap with). Only cost $25 on the way back via United... bloody scam artists.

Sport Tube worked great though, gear was kept safe,.
