I have owned a jack justis but not a jb case, i do however own a instroke, this is the case i use and sold the justis simply because i love the protection the instroke offers, i loved the look of the justis but... when i had to choose looks or protection for my cues,i choose protection. someone said here to collaborate and make the ultimate case, i agree. i would love to have a justis looking case and have a jb or instroke if there padding is the same in one, but thats just me. everyone has there own opinion on what they like for protection. i wish both casemakers the best of luck and hope the bashing of one another stops.
