Who carries their Justis daily? - 05-20-2009, 03:24 PM

Hey Az'ers,
I was fortunate enough to win a Justis Pro-lite 2x4 in a raffle by Mr. Justis in Vegas. I want to carry it, but I'm a little concerned about damage, hijacking, etc. So, I was just wondering who carries theirs as an everyday case and who uses theirs for primarily for storing cues at home? On the one hand, there's no point in having it, if I don't use it. On the other, it's so nice, I don't want anything to happen to it. Any insight would be appreciated.

,,,but as far as protecting your cue, a Justis case is the next best thing to making it bulletproof. GF

Depends...when I'm going to my favorite hall, I carry my Justis case, the Josey cue.

When I'm going to play in a local dive, I pack a 1X1 Porper case & a plain Jane McDermott I picked up in a local pawn shop for $100...

It's all about personal comfort level, I guess...

I have 4 buddies that have his case and they all use them like any other case. I know if I had a Justis I would be using it 24/7. I wouldn't want such a good case go to no use. Plus I would want to show it off hehe

Seriously, what a waste of a great case. I think about trading it or selling it from time to time but I just can't let go of it.

i have a justis 3x6 that is my daily player case. these cases are virtually indestructable and jack will tell you that kiwi paste shoe polish in the correct color is the best way of keeping them looking good. congrats on you win and use the case.

One thought - I'm sure Jack didn't put TLC into making your case so it could sit in the closet. It must gladden his heart to see them out and about.

Another thought - If you bought it as a collector's item which you think will one day increase in value, then leave it in the closet. But if you bought it to use, it's a shame not to. Take out the pretty girls too - don't make them sit at home alone while the plain janes have all the fun.

I use my Justis.

If you take it out something will eventually happen to it. Scratches, bumps, bruises, scrapes, etc. But who cares? You have it, so use it. It just a cue case...

As for me, I have been using mine for years. It is no longer in pristine condition, but it still looks fine. It has fulfilled its potential and taken the damage my cues would have. I have no regrets about using it every day.

I do pretty much. At this point in my life, I don't have much reason to not carry my cues in a Justis Case.

I have a 3x6 pro-lite that I bought about a year or so ago. I've never thought about *NOT* taking it with me other than the times that I just don't feel like carrying such a heavy case around. As for it getting scratched etc... well, for me, I've never admired any cases more than the old beat up leather cases from years past that some of these old guys carry around. The scratches etc... give it character. With that said, I take good care of my things and even though I've been using this case exclusively for more than a year there are hardly any marks on it. I mean c'mon, I go from my front door to my car then from my car to the pool hall. I put my cues together and my case just sits there. How is it really going to get damaged? If I had to take it on a flight and check it through I probably wouldn't.
