Jack did say an unkind word about JB's cases in the other thread, but only after his cases were given a thorough and unprovoked bashing by JB. Now JB revives a very old thread for the purpose of more bashing.
I don't know whose cases are better cue protectors but there's a few things I'm sure of. You don't tug on Superman's cape, you don't spit into the wind, you don't pull the mask on the old Lone Ranger and you don't get into a bashing battle with the speed-typing, seemingly tireless JB. Kudos to Jack for not responding in this thread.
Oh, another thing that may be relevant. I love my Justis case.
The comparison of Justis and the J.Flowers was not unprovoked. It was provoked by Justis case collector Doug Waltrip. Doug had been asked to stay away from making snide comments in threads about my cases. He was told that the consequences would be a thorough examination of Justis cases against our cases. So I followed through.
Yes, Kudos to Jack for not standing up and telling us all why he chooses to build cases where there is a chance that cues can be severely damaged instead of adding proper amounts of padding to INSURE that the damage he warns of could NEVER happen. Bravo Jack. Just ignore it and it will all blow over soon and people will get back to praising your pretty pretty cases without a thought in the world as to your warnings.
Of course you love your Justis. Hope you don't have an accident with it like the guy whose snap broke on his $2300 Justis and his cues flew out it into the snowbank in a North Dakota blizzard. As he and his friend were frantically digging $4000 in cues out of the snow he was just swooning with love for his Justis.
And yes I know Rich, these things NEVER happen to you and you don't know anyone who has ever had a problem with their Justis. And who would be so stupid as to take their cues and cases out in a blizaard anyway. The guy probably deserved to lose his cues in the snow.
It's ok, we all love imperfect things. We love whatever makes us feel good whether that thing is actually good or not. I get it, owning a Justis is empowering, it makes you feel great, part of the club. I understand all the emotions connected to it. And I understand why you feel a deep seated need to lash out at me for "bashing" the object of your love.
No hard feelings on my end. Love away. Jack builds a pretty case worthy of being loved. One can forget the fact that your cues are separated by a paper thin piece of nylon with no padding beyond the first five inches. That's why they say love is blind.
