I had a customer come into the store just the other day and they mentioned that the E-Grip kind of looks like a Bridge for pool. So he asked me, “Could I use that E-Grip instead of a Bridge Stick?”. I had to think for a moment because the thought had not occurred to me before now. I looked at the shape of the E-Grip. I compared it to a Bridge that was sitting on a nearby cue holder. I thought “Why not?”. So later that evening, I decided to try it out and see if the E-Grip could be used as a bridge for pool.
First I set up a shot that would require a bridge to make properly. Then I set myself up over on the far end of the table. I placed my E-Grip upside-down on the table right where I would need a Bridge. After I lined up my shot, I did a few practice strokes. The rubber on the E-Grip allowed my cue to move smoothly, which was a happy surprise.
I lined up my ball, took my shot and made my ball in the pocket! And right after my shot I lifted the E-Grip up with my cue to take it cleanly off the table. Being aluminum, the E-Grip was easy to lift up and the hook-like ends meant there was no chance of accidentally dropping it back onto the table.
So there you have it; the E-Grip can indeed be used as a Bridge for playing pool. Not bad for a “pool cue holder”, huh? :)
