Congratulations on Tony Herrick's correct answer of - "It's a cue extension ...for use on those long shots by those players who hate to use a bridge!" in the first ever "What is that billiard item?" He will receive his free membership at our End of Session Meeting. http://8ballexpress.blogspot.com/2009/07/win-free-membership.html
SIDE NOTE: I had planned on publishing all submissions, but, well, I don't feel comfortable typing them. Is EVERYONE'S mind in the gutter lately!?!??!?!?! Or are most items in billiards really just phallic symbols?
