I just recently purchased one of those round cases for a single cue, where the entire circle is open and there is a padded sleeve for the shaft.

I *think* it might be a sterling round case...

Anyway, the first thing I noted was that even when put in correctly(so thick/thin alternate, joints of both up), there is still a slight compressive force on the butt and shaft of the cue from being "wedged" into the case.

It fits snugly and the force isn't excessive, but it definatly is there..

I am used to a cheaper case that had seperate tube for the shaft and butt so that they were completly seperated and the only force would seem to be gravity when stored upright.

I know I might seem really anal about it, but I am really wondering if over time this type of case would put a slight bend in the cues, from being in contact with eachother(constant pressure from one side on the shaft would seem to deform it over time).


Thanks!

If the cue was to sit in that particular case for years(decades) on end, then yes, it will cause damage. If it's your play cue, don't worry about it.

Compression/wood only deteriates over long periods of time. If you're pulling the cue out of the case on a weekly basis, I wouldn't worry about it.
