Phenomenal Case............ - 02-01-2010, 12:01 AM

[QUOTE=JB Cases;2242266]It's Lee, Zhen Hai, the tooler who designed the piece with me and who did the tooling.

Zhen (Jen) Hai has been working for me for more than two years and he has turned into a world class tooler and case designer.


John,

I would have responded to this thread earlier, but was at DCC where I proceeded to get really ill. It turned out to be a crazy virus that wanted to do some wild dances on my insides for a couple of days, followed by some lumbar screaming for a couple of days, but I am now home and on the mend.

This case is simply phenomenal. The tooling seems to fit the case perfectly in its design layout, both the tooling and case construction are flawless in execution, and overall the case is likely one of the best cases ever made. (The Palace Garden may still own that description). As you can tell, I could not be more pleased.

The way the lid snap is reinforced by shaping of the leather is really, really a good idea and also adds to the look. The upper pouch has a magnetic clasp which is fitted and recessed in a very unique way. I hope you have a picture of the upper pouch open to show this innovative feature. The upper pouch also has a side zipper to increase ease of use. The tooled handles also add very positively to the case.

I am a happy camper! Please pass my sincere thanks on to all who contributed with you in building the case. Particularly the tooler! And I also thoroughly like the fit of the interior to my cues. You would get a positive kick out of seeing the two cues I have currently loaded in the case. If I ever start taking pictures, I will be dangerous.

BTW, where can I find one of the cue balls like the one you have in your pictures? I would like to keep one like it in the ball box (another wonderful feature of this case, a matching ball box!).

Will Prout
