Review for 'Elite Leatherette 2 Butt 2 Shaft Hard Case'
Let me start off by saying how happy I am that I found this case. I like it so much I just purchased the same model in the 2x4 version. It fits all of your needs and then some. This was my second case once I purchased a jump-break cue and the multiple pockets were a welcomed feature to carry the numerous accessories that I had accumulated. The case is extremely well designed in its protection of the cues; to the degree that I determined joint protectors to be a waste of money. To address potential buyers' concerns: After about two years of use I noticed multiple areas of moderate to severe wear. The worst of which was the handle located on the side (which I used the majority of the time) began to rip and detach from the case's body. The hard plastic tubing that holds the butt/shaft also began to ride up and buckle the cloth material on the inside of the case. This was remedied by completely removing the tubing and reinserting it into the body. Also the foam bottoms at the base were punched out from repeatedly dropping the cues in. This resulted in my cue shaft sitting too deep into the tubing and made retrieving the shaft difficult. Another easy repair by removing the tubing and turning it upside down. The foam pads will fall out and you just have to glue or wedge them back in place. Both repairs take approximately 30 seconds and very little effort. The only real problem I can urge potential buyers to consider is the potentially shoddy stitching on the side handle. If you intend to use this case for 1-2 years and upgrade as I did then it's perfect. If this is to be a more long term product ensure that you take care so as to avoid damage that would be particularly difficult to repair.
I would recommend this product to a friend.
