First, thanks for the nice comments Will & Brian. That idea about making the case custom w/Ernie's logo sound cool.

Jim,

I have had several JB Cases in all forms, including 4x8 butterflies; his standard cases (Range Rover, Strong Bear, etc.); GTF; and several Instroke cases from when John was making them. I love them all and they are all made of excellent quality and protection. I also have several cases from other manufactures, but thought I'd concentrate on John's stuff. But my feeling's on the Mason case pretty much hold true for the rest.

Although I haven't used the Mason case all that much so it's still new, I find the weight, size, pocket size & design, and workmanship/quality of the leather to be second to none. Although the pockets are a little more roomy on the 4x8 butterfly because they have more room to work with because of the larger surface, the added length of the large pocket on the Mason allows my extender to be fully assembled when stored, whereas I have to remove the end cap to store it in any other case I have (I love this feature!).

One thing to note is that because of its compact design, it is a tight fit storing my cues in it as it is new and I think the leather and the inserts need breaking in per John's video so this will get better. Other than that...I LOVE IT! It looks cool and all that saw it Friday night love it, too.

I hope that answers your question.

Dave
