There are various types of cue case, from soft cue cases, which are cheap but look after the cue, protecting it from scratches to the attache or hard snooker cue cases. Some of the hard cue cases are made from aluminium. They protect your cues very well and look very smart. There are now American cue cases as well these days, they look more like bags than cases, and only hold cues that are a 50/50 split. But they are getting very popular as pool cue cases as they hold multiple shafts and are a great boon to pool players who have separate break off and playing cues. Then of course we have the tubular cases for the one piece cues, with a small lock on them to protect your cue from theft. This is a popular choice of snooker cue case for snooker club members.
