Hi, my name is Rick. Where are you located. I'm in Kenner, La. My 'children' went to LSU, ages 29, 27, 25, & 21. I'm also in the market for a case as I have puchased 2 shafts & 2 cues. I'm leaning toward a Sterling case as U get John Barton's Ultra Pad interiors. but not in all of them so be careful. John started Instroke, then sold it, waited & then started his own again, JB Cases, You have gotten some great info. Good Luck with it.
