Definition of Mushroom
Mushroom is a billiards term that is a part of Pool Cue Terminology.
Mushroom is an effect that occurs on the cue's leather tip whereby it becomes compressed and begins to overhang the ferrule of the pool cue.
This compression is the result of repeated contact with the cue ball.
The mushroom effect can be prolonged through proper cue maintenance, and high quality pool cue parts.
See: burnish, burnisher, burnishing for more on the meaning of "Mushroom".
Mushroom - Usage
Look at Reggie's pool cue. What a piece of crap. The tip is mushroomed horribly.
How can I prevent the mushroom effect from happening on my pool cue?
