Papa's Got A Brand New Bag Edition (9/25/12)

Howdy PoolDawgians!

The past few weeks we've been mostly talking about new pool cues, so this week I've decided to spotlight those trusty bags we use to carry our beloved cues - pool cue cases.

Rather than tell you about a bunch of cases we've been carrying for years, I'm going pimp some new bags that we just added to the site.  Three were just released by the manufacturers and one is a little older, but new to PoolDawg.

After you're done checking out these new cases, be sure to read Liz Ford's new article discussing five different hand bridge styles you should avoid at all costs.  And away we go!

 

Blade 2x2 Hard Case


This case is so money!  First of all, it looks completely pimp with the stainless steel band treatment to the top and bottom of the case.  The shaft sleeves can take up to a 31" shaft and the pockets are big enough for all your accessories and a jumper butt.  Plus, the case has a sweet padded strap so it won't dig into your shoulder.
 

Athena 2x2 Hard Case

It took a long time, but the folks at Athena finally came out with some new cases.  Available in pink or purple, these 2 butt 2 shaft hard cases feature tribal designs, two generous pockets and poured rubber mold tubes that will keep your cue nice and safe.  

 


Outlaw Cowboy 2x4 Leather Case


Ooh baby is this a nice case.  Pictures really don't do it justice.  The cowboy style worn leather just gets better and better with age.  The strap, the claps, the detail is all just too good for words.  Plus, the pockets are nice and big and the belt buckle strap looks seriously sweet.

 

Poison 4x8 Soft Case

When it comes to Poison, you get a lot more than a supersweet biohazard logo.  Their 4x8 soft case butterflies out, is lightweight and has lots of pocket space
 

 


Liz Ford - Bridges to Burn: 5 Billiards Bridge Mistakes

Without proper instruction, pool-players can come up with some pretty creative (read incorrect and sometimes mildly amusing) ways of doing things. Nothing illustrates this more than the variety of well-meaning but unstable pool bridges that you'll see in your local bar or poolroom. A pool bridge – placing your hand on the table in order to rest the cue on it – shares some common duties with its real-life namesake.

Both pool bridges and actual bridges require structure and stability to allow the support of another object, be it a Mack truck or a pool cue, without undue swaying. Here are five common ill-advised bridges and how to turn them from condemned structures to feats of engineering ... keep reading
