      When i think of Crispian's cases i think of rounded corners as his sort of trademark, coupled together with no straps and top quality details throughout. No suede rolls to divide things up yet, as he forgot to put them in lol, being sent out to me soon.
      Anyone who has had a case direct from him will remember the lovely glue smell and miles of bubble wrap, happy days
      Generally a fan of the heavily patch-worked cases but love the simplistic design of this. Crispian is in a class of his own when it comes to cases

      • Wow!! Absolutely fantastic cases people have here!!

        I have only a boring Peradon plain brown leather case, which is not impressive in any ways. It was quite a disappointment, as it wasn't closing evenly and nice: tight padding inside and only three catches and five hinges trying to hold the case closed. The seam between bottom and top looked horrible when cue and extensions were inside. So, I ordered (luckily found them from ebay) some hinges and catches and added them. I added four catches and six hinges more. I guess, the next stage is making some sort of end covers out of brass.

        Now the case is decent, but still boring.

            wow, but the time you have the case open the frame would be over
            Contact Stu Green at GBL, see if he has any brass corner protectors still available, as I think they should fit on this case.
            Up the TSF!

                  • My guess would be nothing no money left for cues LOL.
