(I use as a backup very rarely, and prefer for snooker), A Willard dime size shaper, Another shaper/tapper that I never use, A mushroom burnisher seldom if ever used, A mushroom graser rarely used, A Tip Pik seldom used, Eight pieces of Master's Blue, always one piece in my left pocket, an ink pen, an eight ball key chain, a nine ball key chain, and my CCB tag. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif I rarely carry my jump cue, since I can't use it in APA play, and when I'm just goofing off, I've found that I can jump fairly well with the Viking, after learning how with the Stealth.

lets see pictures of these cases! I can't believe they hold so much! It's like going to the hall with your house in your back pocket.

05-27-2003, 11:10 AM
Case: Bentley 2x4 leather case(I got it free for putting a team together!!)
Cues: --Samsara "Sneaky Sam" playing cue with 2 Samsara shafts (currently not used)
--Predator shaft for above cue
--Predator BK Break cue

Small pocket: --lots of Master and Triangle chalk
--tip pick/pocket chalk holder

Big pocket: --APA membership card
--Spinalli bridge (I call it the "bat bridge")
--several strips of 1500 grit sandpaper
--a plastic bag containing a piece of leather, an allen key for the Predator break cue weight bolt, a homemade tip shaper (just a piece of pvc pipe cut in half. it has two radii-dime and a little flatter than a nickel, then I put in strips of sandpaper and just hold them in place while I use it--wroks better than anything else I've tried), and a solid brass tip pik.
--an APA "Grand Slam" patch

Outside the case: --large golf towel
--small American flag pin.

That's it.


05-27-2003, 11:16 AM

The cue club is in a big shopping center and like 25 yards away they have a mexican nightclub. Well on sat nights the place is like the wild west over there. Somethings always happening to someone. About 6-7 months ago 2 guys got killed right out front of the pool hall.
