Last time I took a shaft to the poolhall to have it retipped I stuck it in a soft case to avoid damage. The counterman did not want to leave it in the case. He said the tip guy's got a big case he brings with him. So my shaft lies on the back counter of the pro shop for 3 days until the tip guy comes in. I don't like that. Does anybody make a small case for a shaft only? Should I have insisted they leave it in the soft case until the tip guy came in? I think they just didn't want to be responsible for my case until I came back.

Good point Wally..
They should take better care of the customer's cues in for repair. I always put them in a safer place when I ran the pro shop.. some things do change.. We need to remind them of this..

Now that you bring this up, is there any case out there for the bungee jump butt? I hate to put the darn thing in the large pouch of my cue case with all the other things banging against it. Any suggestions out there?

These are all good complaints. I too put my JC butt in the long pouch along with the assorted clutter rolling around in there. Surely there's a neat little sock for it, or would it be underware since it's a butt and not a foot ;-) Sorry, have not had coffee...the humor ain't too good this early. My tip guy(Spidey) is great on handling shafts in transit. The last couple of guys were very loose though, I don't like that! sid

Last time I had to leave a cue at a pool hall I left it in tube like they ship them in. Now I leave them at a repair shop where I know they will be stored properly.

Not my 3x7 Instroke! Maybe the new ones!

I carry a 3x6 case (Guiseppe) but only 2x4 are used for my cues. This leaves three slots open for customer shafts.

Easy access jump handle compartment.
On all Cowboy, Buffalo and Vinyl Cowboy 2+4, 3+5 and 3+7 sizes there is a convenient side storage compartment for 14" jump handles. Always at hand when you need it and stored protectively when you don't.

Try the bunjee people - they sell a "Velcro Strap-On Bunjee Butt nylon lined case". Check it out at:
http://www.bunjeejump.com/mall/01_accesories.asp

Costs less for the case than a new bunjee tip!

Again, not my Instroke. The only compartment it has is the large pouch.
