Definition of Goose Neck Rest
Goose Neck Rest is a billiards slang term that is a part of Billiard Accessory Terminology.
A goose neck rest is the same as a swan rest. The goose neck rest is a type of mechanical bridge or rest used in blackball, British pool, and snooker that is similar to a spider rest in that it's head rests higher due to longer supporting legs. However, instead of having a myriad of grooves on the top of the head for the cue stick to rest on, there is only a one groove.
The goose neck rest is used in situations where the cue ball is obstructed by one or more object balls, or where the hand bridge can not be used.
See: goose neck rest, cross rake, jigger, swan rest, goose neck, spider rest, hand bridge, bridge hand, bridge, mechanical bridge, crutch, rake, bridge stick, rest, spider, hand chalk, closed bridge, open bridge, granny stick, cross, swan for more on the meaning of "Goose Neck Rest".
