I don't know if you mean anything other than a soft case (which is what I suspect), but the Instroke Cowboys have an extra zippered compartment in their long pocket specifically for a jump cue.

Ebay has them often for under $275 for the 2+4 size in leather. Under $200 for the vinyl versions.

Fred &lt;~~~ likes leather, especially when it's tight and black

My case has space for 3 butts+6 shafts. My play cue has 2 shafts, my break cue 1 shaft, my snooker cue 1 shaft, and I put my Bunjee cue in the last 2 remaining shaft holes. The butt of the Bunjee cue fits perfectly in one of the shaft holes.

Hi Laura,

My new Talisman cue cases have room in the 15" long pocket to accomodate a jump cue butt.

Many other features.

Will you ever offer this case in a 3X5 or 3X7?

I've seen them at Hawley's in Dallas and they are beautiful!

3 by 7? Isn't that Googanism? /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
Do you hide your money or knives in there too?

Hello,
I just bought an Instroke case and it has exactly what you are looking for. On the large pocket on the front you will find a zipper on the side, this is a little pocket area specifically for the jump cue.

eg8r &lt;~~~Loves the new case but thinks it is a bit heavy when full of cues

A 3X7 case allows for the following:

A playing cue with 2 shafts.
A break cue with 2 shafts.
A jump cue with 1 shaft (a jump cue butt will usually fit in a shaft tube.)

That totals up to two butt tubes and 6 shaft tubes being used. This leaves 1 butt tube and 1 shaft tube empty. In those two empty tubes I would insert:

A two piece fishing rod. The reel would fit in the large compartment.

And if it's 'Googanism', Instroke started it with their 3X7 case.

Regards,

Ken (King Goog)

For Instroke cases I would suggest www.hawleys.com. (http://www.hawleys.com.) Hawleys sells a lot of Instroke cases and have a nice selection to choose from. http://www.instroke.com/homepage.htm is the page for Instroke. These prices will probably be more expensive than Hawleys. Check out both because sometimes Instroke will have a new one in that Hawleys does not carry.

Hi Rackmup,

I do plan to produce a larger size sometime in 2003. I am not sure what would be the best size to go for. We have limited financial resources so I am concentrating on just the 2 x 4 at the moment but many people have asked for the larger case. What do you think is the next most popular size after the 2 x 4? Is it 3 x 5, 3 x 6 or 3 x 7?

Kind regards,

Troy

I would say 3x6 Tony, but that's just my desire..... /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Troy,
That would be my guess and a separate pouch for the jump handle. I only say this because of there popularity. Rarely will anyone need more than six shafts.

I carry 2 butts and 4 shafts for me, but since I do repairs, I need the other 3 spots to carry customer cues. Even then, occasionally it's not enough room, but I don't want a 3x7.
