JB Case Philosophy by John Barton:
My philosophy is
protection first. I started making cases for one simple
reason, protection. Not just any protection either.
Specifically, protection against damage resulting from your cues
coming out of the case when you don't want them to. I had a $1400
Schon Cue that was broken because my open case was knocked off the
table and the cue shot out of it and broke the butt cap as it
clattered on the floor. That case was a $400 tooled leather
beauty. Top of the line at the time. But it didn't do
the one thing I felt it should and that was to protect my cues until
I removed them from it.
