Hello folks! There might be some of you who are looking for a bridge stick that you can use to adjust the length to fit your needs whether if you’re short or tall. Sometimes there might be situations where the ball is too far to reach that you would need to extend a bridge stick to pocket a ball at the opposite end of the table.
Instead of having a typical bridge stick that is set to be just one size, I have found one to fit your needs. There will be no more grief when that time comes where you have to stretch across the table to reach over and make contact with your cue ball.
Introducing the Retractable Telescoping Bridge Stick. I found this kind of billiards stick on Pool Dawg, and it sells for $41.95 and has a 100% recommendation.
About this bridge stick
If you are wondering what this bridge stick entails, specifications, where to buy, I have provided that information:
- Price: $41.95
- Where to buy: Pooldawg.com
- SKU: BHRT
- Color: Nut Brown
- Materials: Plastic & wood

It’s happened to all of us. You have one of those impossible to reach shots so you go to get the bridge stick only to find out that the place you’re playing at doesn’t have one. Then you try some ridiculous behind the back shot, while standing on one foot, only to completely miss the cue ball and give your now laughing opponent ball in hand.
Well friend, with this new retractable bridge stick, you’ll never have to be that guy (or gal) again. This bad boy is small enough, 14 inches, to fit in your jumper pocket case and expands to a full 57 inches. Don’t go to the pool hall without one.
This product was rated by one person who give this a rating of 4.0 out of 5 stars. His comment about this bridge stick was, “This Product has helped my wife as she is short and we play large tables. The only problem is the shaft will bend is not careful on the retraction. I have tried to straighten by hand but after 2 years use it becoming hard to retract.”
I would have to say that I have not used this product as I’ve only used the traditional bridge stick that can’t be adjusted. As this is coming from a billiards site that caters to their customers’ satisfactions, I would say that I would recommend this product. If you are unsatisfied in any way, Pool Dawg has a 60-day money back guarantee. Just make sure to keep the receipt, and they’ll arrange a way for you to make a return.

Wow I didn’t even know this existed! That is so cool!
The regular bridge is so goofy looking and awkward to use, this is brilliant!
My cousin’s bf plays pool religiously and she is looking to get him something awesome. How long has this been out? I will be sure to share it.
Hi wildfind! I also find the regular bridge awkward as well. Also, it is much more inconvenient to use as the stick can’t adjust to a person’s height should he be a short person that can’t stretch the length of the table. This adjustable bridge stick is a “one size fits all” and cater to almost everyone who plays pool. I am hoping that your cousin’s bf would be interested in this, and I’m thankful that you’re sharing this.
To answer your question, this bridge stick has been out/available since 2011. I hope this helps, and I look forward to hearing from you again. Cheers!
This is a very interesting review on this innovative devise. The frequency with how often we use this assist in the course of a match, would suggest that it needs to be more robust and made from a stronger material.
That said it was a great invention first day and maybe as we go forward, someone will improve on the quality of this billiards bridge. The idea is out there, for someone to pick up on it and improve.
Thanks for sharing this review,
Cheers and best wishes
Hi Phil, and thanks for commenting! In my opinion, whoever came up with the idea of making a bridge stick to be adjustable was a genius to say the least. I feel that once people catch on to this item, there won’t be standard ones anymore. Thus, there won’t be anyone having problems when people try to make those difficult shots while playing pool should the situation arise. I always try to put as much quality products on this site as I can. Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. Feel free to stop by anytime and providing a comment on this site. Cheers!
