View Full Version : What do you have in YOUR case?

Me? It's downright embarrassing:
In the small pouch of my Porper 3X6:
1. Pilfered Masters Blue chalk
2. A cue holder (clamps to a table or ledge for league play at bars)
In the long pouch:
1. Five different tip shapers.
2. Cue silk.
3. McMagic cue papers.
4. Gum (Wrigley's)
5. More chalk.
6. Spinali bridge head.
7. A piece of an 8-ball (used for marking my pocket in APA league play.)
8. "Hole Reinforcements" (those little sticky things. I use them for practice drills.)
9. Eye drops.
10. Marker coins (4 of them, in a film canister.)
12. A plastic tube that holds $10 in quarters (for league play/laundry.)
13. Tip Prick.
14. Yes...cues also (RichR!) My McDermott D-15 and 2 shafts, a McD break cue and 2 shafts and a Meucci jump cue (1 shaft).
Jeezus...my fiance' doesn't have this much crap in her purse!
Two cues (cuetec and a cheap break cue i picked up), sand paper, smoothing cloth, pencil, tip pik, scuffer, nylon glove, chalk and chalk holder, powder pouch, some misc cuetips... i think thats it.

What is really embarassing, Ken, is the fact that you don't list any cue sticks in your case. Why carry the case? LMAO.
I have two cues, mentioned in another thread, a third cue if my wife is going to play, case for my glasses, which I remove to play, Tip-Pik, Univerasal Willard/Tapper, Q-Wiz discs, towel, square piece of felt for wiping shafts, spinali bridge head and a small plastic bottle of talc. I also carry a Brad scuffer in my pants pocket. Rich R.~~~I know I'm forgetting something.

I have most of the standard stuff, including a towell, scruffers, sanding papers....but the newest addition and my favorite is chapstick!!! No longer do I have to dig in my purse when my lips get that uncomfortable sting durring a tough match! (Why is it my mouth get dries and my hands get wet????) I just reach into the top pocket and walla, relief! Why didn't I think of it sooner? I also plan to put in some nail clippers, I hate when I break a nail and can not repair it, it becomes a distraction!! /ccboard/images/icons/wink.gif
Let's see, my Guiseppe 2 X 4 has 1 Predator sneaky pete and 1 Helmstetter with 1 shaft used for breaking and 1 used if the Predator don't like me that day. The Cuetec break/jump is in a back up case at all times. Guess I'm like everyone else. I've got cue silk and some TK. I've got gum and a tip pik. Spare lighter and matches. Sandpaper and shaper, tip pik as well. Probably a few different chalks. League schedule and membership cards. What else, I don't like alot of extra garbage in there so I keep it clean.
Kato~~~Voodoo would be happy about case organization.
3x6 Giuseppe=McD QR-5, McD CJ2 + 314 Shaft, McD Jump/Break. Large Pouch=towel, set of darts, box of silver cup, box of master, bridge head, shaft conditioner, shaft slicker. Small Pouch=allen wrenches, mushroom grazer, 3 tip shapers, q-wiz, tips for darts, tip pik. Then I have a cue holder I can clamp to a table connected to the strap. I think that's about it.

1 Schon STL-14
- 1 Predator Shaft
- 1 Schon Shaft
1 Meucci 97-21
- 2 Matching Red Dots
1 Meucci PP1 (I use as a break cue)
- 1 Predator Shaft
- Masters Chalk (mostly pilfered as well LOL!)
- Home made 'Chalk 'n Stick'
- Cue-Buddy (cue holder)
- Tip Shapers:

- My Pre-Shot routine typed out and folded on an 8.5x11 piece of paper (lost my laminated copy)

You know, all those little things we need from time to time!
02-27-2002, 09:33 AM
Thanks for this post, Ken. I have just about everything everybody else has, but I've learned that I need to add eye drops! What a great idea! Why didn't I think of that before?
Now if anyone could figure out a way to include portable oxygen without having to give up room for the chalk...
