G.T.F. Replica 1X2 - 12-15-2009, 04:11 AM

This is my review of the GTF replica series 1x2 in rust lizard print. Contact Tony (Benfica) for a great selection.



1st Thank you John Barton for building and designing this line!
2nd Those that already own one already know all of this.

Now on to the case. The first thing I noticed is how well the leather is fitted to the case. Being a "Replica" series it was one of the 1st things I looked at. The finishing on the end caps of the case is true perfection. The second thing I noticed about the case was balance and texture. This case just feels good in your hand. I bought a lizard print case and the texture that is embossed into the leather itself is nice and deep. That along with the thickness grade of leather used gives a very strong impression that this case is armored well for my cue. Then you notice the length of the case and lid space and realize this case will take any size joint protector on almost any length cue. A true collector's case. Upon removing the lid I was also so very impressed at how the material wrapped tube suctioned and worked better than the old style It's George cases. So what do I find inside but more fit and finish that is top notch. The material used is so soft yet strong. You find this desire to just keep popping the lid off this case because it feels that nice. So I slide my cue into the caseummm yeah, and I thought at first oh no it won't fit! Well I kept going and it hit bottom nice and snug and though this must be the "Lovable Hug" I heard about. Next went in the shafts to the same nice snug fit. Kinda like tucking your kids in at night. Except the cues come first right? Just kidding. So there it was all snuggled in new GTF protection and then I slid the lid on. WOW! I said to myself. I own and collect It's George cases and swore they could never be improved upon. Well like my wife says "I was wrong again". In fact I can not think or find one thing about the case that I would change. Try it for yourself and see. As for buying a new case of this traditional design I can not see buying any other brand. My only request to John and GTF is I really need a 3x6 So this case is easy to sum up if you are giving GTF a thought. This is a nice case $195 to $300+. Ultimate protection for your cue PRICELESS! http://www.gtfcases.com/
