Does any one know anything about Bentley or Vincitore cases?
I have seen them on ebay for very low prices, but have never seen one in use or know anyone who has one. Any info will be appreciated.

It's tough for me not to recommend the leather Instroke Cowboy, a Whitten, or Jack Justis.

Fred,

You and CC and me gotta go see JJ at the US Open. I am still holding a coupon for a JJ case from Christmas and damn it! I'm cashing it in.

Barry pointed out to me the scuff marks on my Instroke (which I will keep for personal reasons)and my case is a "soldier guarding my weapon and needs to be able to be scuffed around", but I think I can keep a finely tooled leather case in good condition AND travel with it.

Oooo Oooo Oooo!!! And SPetty, please feel free to advise with decorating details.

BTW, I just found out last night I gave away a "It's George' 1x2 case to my GF who never paid me for it several years ago. She offered, but never came through with the dough. What would a replacement case be? I'm only interested in the "It's George" case for it's tightness value in storing other cues in my basement.

Barbara~~~not cheap... but highly values value... /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Vincitore and Bentleys are knock-off of the Instroke Cowboy. They are leather all right but thinner, thus prone to more damage than with a Cowboy. The leather in the handles and straps is thinner, as well as all around the case.

I've purchased a few for friends and they were satisfied with the product.

If you want good protection of your cue, go with the Instroke.

Thanks for the info Harold. After using a $12.00 case I bought at a pawn shop 4 years ago, anything will be an improvement. I can afford a vinyl Instroke or a Leather Bentley. I don't travel with my cue much. Petty Point Pool Hall is as far as I ever go. Time for a coin flip I guess.

Take a look at the Instroke GEO series. Real leather at about the same price as the vinyl premier series.

Yeah! Something like that but without that silver stuff wrapped around it.

Barbara~~~couldn't SPetty find matching dog collars???

I use an el cheapo soft case which works just fine. I am very careful not to throw it around or give it the rough treatment. Most of all I do not step on it! The only thing it lacks is an accsesory compartment for a cue extender, chalk, towel,shooting glove, and tip scuffer.

Why is there duct tape on this case? Is it just for "decoration" or is there some purpose. I ask because the first Instrokes I made were wrapped in duct tape as well - tubes/insulation foam/duct tape - then the exterior.

This is a home-made travel case to protect my cheapo cue case since the airlines no longer allow us to carry them on. As I'm sure you can tell, it's a PVC tube and yes, the duct tape was put there for a reason. Its intent is to keep the pieces together after the baggage handlers smash the tube. Not altogether unlikely if you know the kind of luck I have... /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif
