CROC Long Tubular Cue Case
Advantages: Protects cues very well, looks smart
Disadvantages: A bit pricey
Investing a decent cue case is a must, especially if you've purchased an expensive cue which you want to keep safe from moisture and miscellaneous knocks. Most cues do come with a case, but these are often soft pouch-like affairs which do little to protect your costly potting stick. The cue that I recently purchased didn't actually come with a case, so I had to buy my own. I decided on the Croc Tubular Cue case, which is currently available for £27.99 from Amazon. To be honest, I wasn't too keen on spending nearly thirty pounds on a cue case, so I purchased my one for £24 on eBay.
Design & Appearance
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
The Croc case takes the appearance of a poster tube, covered with a black 'crocodile skin' effect material. Thankfully, it's not real crocodile skin, nor is it real leather - instead it's a water resistant vinyl which i've found to be hardwearing and fairly scuff-resistant. The end section (the bit where you put the cue in) features a zippable lid to further protect your cue from the elements. In general the case looks nice and neat, and on the side there's a small additional section which is perfect for keeping chalks.
Specifications & Final Word
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
At 116 centimetres in length, the Croc case will fit any 3/4 jointed snooker or pool cue. Inside, the tube is divided into two sections so the shaft section is kept separate from the cue's butt - this is handy as it stops the two pieces of wood bashing together and causing any superficial damage. The weight of the case is negligible, and I've had no problems transporting it around - that said, it does feature an adjustable shoulder strap if you're keen on the over the shoulder look! Overall, the Croc Tubular Cue Case is a well made and smart looking accessory which offers a good deal of protection for the cue inside. At £27.99 I would argue that the product is slightly overpriced, so look out for bargains on eBay.
