    My advice would be to get a case which protects your cue well, first and foremost. You see a lot of people go for flashy looking cases on a budget, which tend to be fake leather with cheap foam and bad hinges. Look okay for the first couple of weeks, but your cue rattles around inside and it won't be long before the thing starts to fall apart!
    I'd also suggest getting a 3/4 case, even if you have a center join 2-piece cue, as it'll give you options for extensions maybe in the future.
    Without a doubt the best case you'll get for the money, in terms of being durable and protecting your cue would be the aluminium Cue Craft cases. The 3/4 ones are around £60 and it'll prob be the last case you buy! Lots of pros actually have these in one piece. Yes you can spend £300 on a handmade leather job, but for quality and protection the Cue Craft takes some beating.
    I think i may be investing soon, currently have a cheapo and my cue rattles around terribly

    I saw Stuart Bingham a while back with a 1-piece Cue Craft ali case. If they're good enough for a world champion they must be pretty good!!

    just done abit of research spotted also a peradon silver flash it's a 2 piece case with an extension compartment and combination lock looked pretty nice to me

    This is a pretty nice case from JB in his Rugged line and would be right around 80gbp I think.



    Holds two cues, three shafts and probably a few extensions.

    don't tend to see this type of case in UK/Europe, more a NAM/Asia market

    some work goes into the leather tooling though

    and you wont get one for £80

    The best case maker I've seen for two-piece cues is JB Cases. Don't know his web page off hand but I'm sure you can google him. He has a case called the 'Rugged' that can't be beat for protecting your cue. They also have tons of extra pockets for accessories and what have you and you can customize them when you order.

    yep, good call on the 3/4 for extras
    ADR147 does stock those, had several of him in the recent past
    get your post count up to over 10 and you can PM him

    cheers for the advice on the 3/4 case not looking on spending over £80 so a halo or the aluminium cue craft are ideal cheers

    Good advice on the 3/4 case.
