The "Everglades" Case
This interior is the nuts, to use a pool term
for those who don't know. That means it's the best. Why? Well it
protects from impact, some temperature change, abrasion, and accidental
removal. The parts are kept separate and secure. There are those that
say "protection isn't everything". I personally wonder what they would
say if their $2000 cue accidentally fell out of their beautiful, but not
overly protective, case and got damaged? Of course everyone thinks it
will never happen but life has a funny way of making things happen that
never should. So when I build cases I try to plan for most
eventualities and keeping the cue snug and secure until willfully
removed is one of the things I can do. I could tell you a lot of
stories about how folks had unusual things happen to their cases, cases
I built, and the cues came out unscathed.
Some other case makers really don't care too much about it. I guess I could be compared to the cue maker who is always trying to improve the "hit" of the cues as opposed to one who doesn't care too much about the hit and focuses on the look of the cue.
With that in mind you can be sure that no matter what surface decoration goes on a JB Case it's sitting on top of the best protection in tube-style cue cases that exists today.
I know most of you all are into the looks first - hey we are all into our image. I understand that looks are very important. I just want you to know that you don't need to worry about what's under the hood. It's taken care of.
