There are ASKA cue cases for sale on ebay in a 3X5 configuration. Is anybody familiar with these? I know at the price they're going for that can't be top shelf. But do they get the job done.:confused:

well my two cents is you get what you pay for a cheap case is no good for a really good cue IMO

It looks like a good deal for the money but I wouldn't keep my Bushka in it :eek: :D You may want to check the wanted/for sale forum and post that you're looking for an inexpensive case. You may be offered up a good deal.

the ASKA cue case at:

Looks to me to be the same as this Elite case from pooldawg.com:

but the second is $84. If so, I had one of the Elite cases and liked it just fine. I sold it because I do a lot of wlking carrying my cues in their case and I found the Elite case to be too heavy.

Buy the best case you can afford to buy...as you will likely have this case longer than the cues you may be keeping in it. I have some cases that I have had for a VERY long time...and will likely never part with them because they are just that good a case.

I would recommend, as your best bang for the buck, an Instroke or StrokeSports (formerly Instroke Germany, original manufacturer of the Instroke brand) Premier vinyl case. These cases are made of a heavy duty, upholstery-grade vinyl...looks very much like leather, and it darn near bullet proof! Mine still look like new!! These will provide you with probably the best protection for your cues that money can buy. Plus, there is plenty of room to accomodate longer cues, or those with taller joint protectors. Nice big user-friendly pockets too! Not to mention the ability to store your cues butt up or down.

www.hawleys.com has always had the best pricing on these cases. Another option to look at...they are availble @ Hawley's as well...is one of the Silver Fox cases. They make two styles...and since they are made locally, I have seen the quality in these cases....very good. Tons of storage space in these cases!

Good luck with your search!
