Anyone ever used this? Thoughts? Opinions? :confused:

From the product page (http://www.buddyhall.com/Cue-Accessories/Buddy-Hall-Billiard-Products/Billiards-Buddy-Hall-p352255.html)
The X-Bridge is made of a soft rigid foam. It will not mar or scratch your personal cue. There are notches for ever position level you will ever need. You can bridge over balls and straight down the rail. Will fit in any standard billiard cue case pouch, size dimensions, 4" X 2 1/2".

I'd buy it, and I just might.

Is it squeaky? Like those foam packing peanuts? Can't have that. I don't think Buddy Hall is going to endorse something that sqeaks.

One of my teammates has one. I do not like it. I prefer my plastic Moose/ Bat Bridge or whatever that black thing is called. :)

I don't know how or where this one is made but I know that a guy out of Washington State used to make them out of EVA foam (like flipflops) and I liked them a lot. They were rigid enough to use as a bridge but flexible enough to feel the shot. Also they are very versatile as shown in the pictures.

I liked them so much I am making a leather version. I personally find them way better than any other bridge out there.

I would consider buying a leather version. Hmmmmm...?

Somebody should make one out of a magic eraser, then all the equipment whores could clean their milky white shafts at the same time.... :killingme:

Fun idea.

I used one once and didn't like the feel of the cue moving through the foam. I like the leather bridge from Tiger and I like the Just-A-Bridge.

I have one, and it works very well. I believe this foam bridge is much better on shafts. I've put a dent on one of my shafts once before using a metal bridge a long time ago. When using low english using a bridge on a shot, the shaft slipped and put a ding on the shaft. This foam will never do that to a shaft. A leather version would be nice!
