Wow, those cases are really nice.
Fact check for those that don't know. Every factory in china is not equivalent to "slave labor" as so many seem to think.
They are hard working people, who do take pride in their craftsmanship. It is certainly evident in these cases.
PVC is PVC, leather is leather....and if given the proper techniques for construction and tooling....any country can produce a quality pool case. Just because the artisans (trained by Barton) are Chinese does not mean they or their craftsmanship are inferior.
In all of these anti-Barton battles I have no sides, and I've never jumped in at all....(check my posting history) -- but some of the things I read from people who just want to spread negativity and bash are ridiculous.
