Review for 'Cue It Up 4 Pool Cue Holder'
This is a great cue holder especially for those if us that use multiple cues or play with other people like on league night. I have plenty of room for my shooting cue my jump/break cue plus two open slots for my teammates. I even let my opponents use it as long as I'm not losing too badly! I have owned another clamp-on style cue holder before and this one has some pros and cons when compared to the older one. In the con category it doesn't hold the cues as securely as my first holder. It had plastic C-shaped clips that held onto the cues to prevent them from accidentally falling out. However the flip side of that coin was that the clips had little jagged burrs on the edges that tended to scratch the shaft if you were too aggressive pulling the cue out. All this being said I haven't had any issues with my cues falling out yet. On the pro side is the size of the jaws. My previous holder would only clam onto a very narrow square-front table edge due to the clamp mech. With the Cue-It-Up I have yet to find a be par or table that it won't hang onto. The jaws open really wide and the rubber strips inside the jaws help it to hold onto the edge very securely. Also I love that it has the 8-ball on one side and the 9-ball on the other side. That way if I'm at league playing 8-ball I put that side up. If I'm out playing 9-ball I show that side. (Yes I am just that OCD) And finally one pro that is also a bit of a con: overall size. I love that it is large enough to hold four cues. But in order to do so and in part due to the jaw design the cue holder is much larger than my previous one. I have yet to decide how best to transport it. So far I have it clipped to the shoulder strap of my cue case as have most people I have seen with them. I'm not a huge fan of this though because it makes it difficult to carry the case over a shoulder. Still working on this though so I'll call it a wash. Overall I would definitely recommend the Cue-It-Up for someone looking for a nice way to keep their cues from crashing to the floor.
I would recommend this product to a friend.
