Great Elite case! 26/01/2013Elite 3 Butt 7 Shaft Leather CaseI owned a hard case for years that was a step down in quality and this Elite case is just all round built solid. The top cloth area where you slide your cues into is recessed from the leather lid so the tops of your cues stick out 3''so you can grab them with your hand. Small detail that doesn't exist in some cases therefore making you turn your case upside down to shake your cue out. The zipper is strong as well as the 1/4 turn lock for the smaller pocket. My only complaint is the shoulder strap is a little small and should be longer. You can get it on your shoulder but it's tight. None the less a great buy! Shipping was fast too.I would recommend this product to a friend.
