what pedaltrain board is optimal for flying around america and europe (for tours etc)? I was going to get a pedaltrain 2 but I might be able to get by with a junior if thats going to be easier to take on a flight. any suggestions? I'll be checking my guitar in I suppose.

I fly with a PT-1, which has a sort of light hard case. It's not ATA rated, but it's fairly compact and I've thrown it in the overhead locker a couple of times.

You can get 8-10 pedals on a Junior, if that's enough for you, that might be your bet. The Junior comes with a heavier hardshell case, I believe.
The PT1 only comes with a hardshell case, but as stated, it's a lighter case. Not a problem when you're carrying it on with you. It''ll afford you a couple more pedals.
The Junior with the hard case is a bit more expensive than the PT1.

There are some popular guitarist in the Christian/praise and worship industry (just google Matt Kidd or James Duke) that use a fully loaded PT-3 with a hard case. With a power supply, cables, and accessories in the case it still weighes under 50 lbs.

I guess you should first decide whether you want to take your board as a carry on or as checked baggage. That would make the difference in size and durability of the case.

Props to the op. :bonk

If it were me I'd go as small and light as possible. I just bought a Monocase for my Jr and I'm really happy with it. Better than the soft case but not as heavy or bulky as the hard case.

do you think the monocase offers some heavy duty protection, or is it still a soft case with some extra padding? also, any other recommendations for cases for a pt jr that are not the standard soft case, ata flight case, or mono case?
