Definition of Spider

Spider is a billiards slang term that is a part of Billiard Accessory Terminology.

A Spider is a type of rest that is rather similar to a North American rake bridge, but that has longer legs. Because of a spider's longer legs, the spider's head sits at a higher level which in turn causes the cue to sit higher. This allows the shooting player to be able to reach over or around obstructions such as other object balls.

See: goose neck rest, cross rake, jigger, swan rest, goose neck, hand bridge, bridge hand, bridge, mechanical bridge, crutch, rake, bridge stick, rest, hand chalk, closed bridge, open bridge, granny stick, cross, swan, spider rest for more on the meaning of "Spider".
