    • I bought this case for my son. He had borrowed one of my Joe Porper cases and I really wanted it back. The 2x4 case Elite case came in prior to his birthday and truthfully I was tempted to trade him my Porper for it. It is well laid out and extremely functional. It has great protection for the cues and loved the styling. In the end I did give it to my son and he loves it. Great case for anyone who wants a quality case at a good price.

    • From the home table to the pool hall, anyone serious about the game will eventually come to know Simonis cloth. It rolls true, doesn't pill and will only get better with age. I am on my second re-felting on my 7 foot table and wouldn't choose any other felt. My previous felting was Simonis 860 standard felt which was wonderful to play on until my son decided to try jumping the cue ball. Once he moved out I decided to re-felt my table to get back to a appropriate practice state. I chose the 860HR for its playability and would hold up to lots of use. I couldn't be happier.

    • What to say about a spot...
      It holds well to the felt as long as it's clean. Seems to wear very well and not fade.
      I have used them on my table every time I re-felt and even donate them to the occasional bar who haven't marked the foot spot. Worth the money to know where to put the head ball.

    • I've seen many cue holders over the last 30 years of playing. Clips and clams, stands and hooks. I've found that many are good but aren't versatile. Others are too bulky to be practical to travel with them. The Q Claw holds my cue securely without being intrusive. It's only drawback is the weight. When in my case it significantly adds to the weight of the case, but all things considered the weight is worth having something that won't slide and can be used on any flat surface.

    • When I bought this DVD I did so thinking it would be Nick Varner doing the instruction. Well 2 minutes into it and you realize that Nick just sold his name and picture for the box. The information is acurate and does provide some help in improving. Most of the information is available through many other items. SO, for the price would I buy it again? Not so much. If I had nothing else and didn't mind learning through this program it might be worth a look.
