I ordered a number of their smaller cases for testing and they just didn't feel right or seem well thought out. Could also just be that I don't know how to order the right parts to go inside them. Like ordering just a Coyote DTC6 case but not knowing how to order all the right inside parts and grommets to make it work.
Ended up just working with the DTC6 in a layered feeder design where we feed a string of DTC6s with a 24 strand clearfield cable in 10/6 coming from a real splice case and then feed YourX terminals off of the DTC6 using strongfiber run through 10/6. Wouldn't work as well running down a road in a line but works really well when you need to service a few hundred distributed houses in a community off of one real splice case.
