JB case REVIEW - 03-10-2012, 02:41 PM

This is my review of my purchase and use of a John Burton case. please comment on your experiance with JB cases but post pictures of your cases in the case gallery. thankyou.


On about Feb. 8th i ordered a personalized J flowers tribute case from JB Case website http://www.jbcases.com/ The website is fun to navagate and the ordering form is easy to complete. The communication with Karen, Johns wife, was 1st rate with fast knoledgable responses. Overall the experiance was excellent and i really felt like i was a valued customer. The day after i paid i was sent a scetch to give an idea of what my case would look like and to see if i wanted to make any changes. Also at this time i was given an approximate build start date of March 14. I gave the go ahead and here we are March 10 and yesterday i recieved a progress picture and the case looks to be COMPLETE AHEAD OF SCHEDUAL!!

Here are the scetch and the progress photo sent from JB Cases... I cant wait to get my custom case and give further review on the functionality and just as important the reactions of case enthusiasts such as myself.

thankyou JB Cases

I am going to sit tight this month. I used to have a TJ case made in Florida (bonus points for newer name of TJ cases).

I am very impressed with what JB offers and the one Rusty posted a pic of was sweet.

Hard to choose, its like quality VS quality and from what I see you can't lose which way you go.

yours must be very intricate. Im sure mine was so fast because it is a j-flowers tribute and it doesnt have any hand tooling. Just costum dye and a laser engraved name. shoot karen an email, im sure she would be glad to give you an update.


As for my case... i took it to my first tournement yesterday, the tournement was played in a downtown area with about 8 bars in a 2 block radius. players walked from bar to bar to play there next match, and i must say that the flowers tribute 3x6 isnt light. (i was carying 2 butts and 5 shafts) i wouldnt campare it to the ruck sak i luged around in the military but if i wern't a young buck i might be irritated by its weight. The sholder strap pad provides just enough padding to make it comfortable to carry.
Love the ultrapad interior and the protection the entire case provides.

Love the finish and the look.

Love the storage space, i can carry all my tools and my 2 playing cues and still have space for an opportune buy if needed.

L shaped zippers are not the smoothist but may free up over time as the leather on the pockets gets more flexable.

Any update on this ? Just curious on average estimated turn around time for a custom case. October to now, seems like a very long time to be waiting for a sketch and build date. Was a deposit made or required ?

John is pretty upfront about the fact that his communication skills offline are lacking...which is why he urges those wishing to place an order, check on progress, etc. to contact his wife Karen at karen@jbideas.com with any questions or concerns. Karen is very good about getting things back on track when they get a bit derailed.

They get lots of inquiries, and sometimes things get lost in the shuffle. I guarantee you will get the ball rolling again with an email to Karen.

No deposit was made. I just brain farted on this one leading up to the SBE. The case is pretty easy and we were having a discussion on the type of leather.

Still working out the bugs on the system for handling orders. Someday it will work like a swiss clock. Now it's pretty broken.
