Tired of missing the flopping fish's head and beating the heck out of my fiberglass deck. Had this 1.5" diameter chunk of dowl laying around so I put this heavy rubber table leg thingy on it. Large diameter is easier for me to grip. Offered to try it out on my neighbor, but he ran off...so I can only assume it will work well. Highly technical operation required about $5 and 5 minutes to complete.
