I just recently picked up a 3x6 black pretty standard case and with it the guy sold me an earl strickland cuetec and an embassy j/b cue. I paid 100$ canadian cash for everything and the guy even drove to meet me since he lived 25 mins or so away which was nice even tho I was gonna drive there. I really only wanted the case since I estimate it sells from probably around 200$ canadian new. It is in mint condition my only question is I have never heard of embassy and I have no idea what it is worth. I know it isn't much but, it doesn't look like anything special... any ideas on what I can sell it for at all? I know the strickland cue is 99.99 american.. soo I will prob just sell it to a friend for like 30$ canadian. did I get a really good deal or no? im just guessing on the cases worth.

You got a pretty good deal, Though if it's a case similar to the one I had. Black vinyl with three diagonal butt tubes and then 2 sets of L shaped shaft tubes??? If that's the case it's about an 79.99 case [american] The embassay i'm not sure on but i imagine you could probably get between 50-75 [american] depending on the location and the style. The cuetec meh, Firewood? :D


Hope this helps because you did get a good deal as far as I can tell, though I admit my currency exchange program sucks. Cause i'm not sure the transitional rate between U.S. and Canadian.

It is actually the case you mentioned 79.99 american with taxes would be about 115$ canadian so I guess it is an alright deal since I needed the case and I will probably make 50-70$ dollars back if I sell the cues to friends. I wanna see how this cue breaks though before I do anything.

Those cases aren't bad at all, i bought mine along with a mike sigel J/B for like 115 cash so you got a good deal, besides you're gonna get a chance to recoop some money off of the deal by being able to sell both cues, good luck and nice hunting
