Extremely Well Designed, Constructed, and Durable
December 18, 2010
I have owned this Instroke case for five or six years. On League night when playing away, I place: the Game que; the Brake cue; the Shorty cue; and the Bridge (BHBDS) in the case tubes and have what ever I need no matter where we play. On home games I have a 2S/2B case that gets the Game and Break que, that is all I need. Immediately after the unit arrived, I gave the case a heavy coat of saddle soap to seal all the leather joints and stretching plus assist in water proofing and soften the leather. I have repeated this every year and the case is very close to its condition when it came in the door. The case is extremely well designed, constructed, and durable. OK, $320 ain‚€™t cheap for a case, but you get more then you pay for. One undocumented bonus is the zipper down the left side of the upper storage pocket (picture), my first thought was ‚€œSo What?‚€ but you can easily get at anything without dumping then whole pocket, ‚€œOK, that‚€™s nice.‚€ The only draw back is when you walk in and your opponent sees the case they immediately think, ‚€œOh Boy, I am playing a Shark!‚€, you then have the immediate advantage!
