Help Choosing a Pool Cue Case


Help Choosing a Pool Cue Case

I just had my old Joss West pool cue refinished by Billy Stroud, and bought a Stinger break/jump cue.

I need a fairly light 2/3 leather pool cue case with at least 1 storage pocket. Nothing too fancy, but quality through and through. I have a great Fellini from back in the day but I need to carry the break cue as well. I'm looking at "In Stroke" and "Jim Murnak" cases, but I haven't seen either one yet.

I ordered a cheap vinyl Guiseppe for the time being. I also have a new Paul Dayton Rambow style cue coming in a couple months too.

Can anyone offer any suggestions for the highest quality case with 2/3 capacity and a storage pocket?

    The highest quality case will cost a bit of money.

    In my opinion, a JUSTIS cue case is the way to go there. I just wish I could afford one, but I'm limited to "instroke" cases. In their own right, they're a good case also, but JUSTIS cases are by far the best IMO.

    I think he only makes a 2x4, but I don't really know for sure, so ask him.

    For the price, you can't beat the quality of a Murnak cue case.

    I have a 3x6 Vintage style Murnak case and it's the best case I own. It's easy to get your stuff out of the pockets and plenty of room to fit all your cue stuff.

    Instroke cases are good also. I have 2 of them, from the original Instroke cue case line, not the newer ones made overseas.

    But if you want great quality and a case that will last a life time, and you don't mind sending that little extra, go with a Murnak case.

    You won't be disappointed.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence regarding the Murnak cue case.

    I had a Murnak holster and it was very nice, so I had about decided to try one.

    I already called him and he said that he currently has a 6-week lead time. I'm assuming that is a little optimistic based on his holster estimates, but good things are worth the wait.
