There are many times when you need to stretch to reach a shot, and that's where the normal "mechanical bridge" comes in handy. The problem with the bridge is that you lose a lot of the feel of a shot, and you are standing in an position that is not natural. Your sight line is not normal, you must make adjustments to your aim, and the success rate for shots using the bridge are lower.
That's where this neat cue extension comes in. It fits over the butt of your cue and gives you another 14" or so of reach, while allowing you to use your bridge hand, giving a more natural feel for the shot.
It's too big to fit in the cue case, so it goes in the tournament support bag. Click here to check it out on Amazon.com.
(I used this extension twice to good effect in my recent straight pool match win.)
