I recently got a new break cue and needed a nice case to hold both it and my player cue. Pockets are great size and can hold a lot of items. The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is because the length of my player cue with joint protectors make it difficult to fit the top. It is a very snug fit and I have to put my player cue on the front two (pocket side) slots. Otherwise, it is a little difficult to get the top on and zipped up. Great case!! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (2) Reply 17 of 19 people found the following review helpful Measure twice, buy once, June 29, 2010 By Andrew Alexander – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) I never considered my J Pechauer cue to be of irregular size (it’s the same overall length as all the other cues in the pool hall), but this case sure does, most likely because of the length of the screw joint on the butt. The shaft fits in the case, but only if you remove the joint protector. The butt doesn’t fit at all with the joint protector attached, but can be crammed in without it. I’ve got a fairly nice cue, so I’m not too thrilled about having to manhandle it to get it into a case. If you’d like to save yourself some grief, measure your cue before purchasing this case. Here is the length that fits comfortably: 29 1/4″. You might be able to squeeze and extra 1/8″ – 1/4″ if you don’t mind lightly cramming the cue into the case. The product description says that the tube is 28 1/2″ and the end cap has a depth of 1″. I measured with it myself and found the tube depth to be accurate, but the cap depth to be only 7/8″. The length of the butt of my cue is 30 1/2″, including the joint screw. If I removed the joint protector from the butt and inserted it joint first, I could get it to close by forcing the butt down into what I presume to be hard foam at the bottom of the tube. If the joint screw is smaller on your cue, this might work for you without having to apply much pressure. If storing your cue with joint protectors is important to you, make sure you measure your cue with the joint protectors on to see if this case will work for you. I found that when I used the joint protector on the butt, I couldn’t get it to go into the foam at the base of the case like I could without the joint protector. I can’t see all the way down into the tubes, but it sounds as if the tubes for the shafts are not lined all the way with protective fabric. At around the 2/3 mark you begin to hear what sounds like plastic raking lightly against the side of the shaft. It’s probably nothing, but it can be a bit disconcerting to think that your cue is getting scraped every time you take it in and out of the case. On the plus side, the pouches are ample and well-made, and would easily fit most of the accessories I usually use (scuffing tools, shaft polishing tools, chalk, tip tapper, moose bridge, etc.), and still have room for storing the contents of my front pockets while I’m playing. Also, both the strap and the handle are removable, in case you only want to carry your case one way. The quality is about what you’d expect for the price, but now that I’ve seen and felt the vinyl, I’m planning to buy a nice leather case instead. Lastly, the product description of this item is a little hard to read because it looks like the html coding was somehow included. Would be nice to get that cleaned up. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (2) Reply 8 of 8 people found the following review helpful Great case, April 14, 2009 By Rich M (Boston, MA USA) – The case is great. It’s a simple design and fits my Meucci cue snugly.I like the look much better than my last case which was a hand me down Vincitore. The case stays tight to the side of my body and doesn’t swing at all when traveling. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
