The handle received in the hole l is identical with the handle t3, but, of course, is provided with right hand threads and is to be used Iwhen the device is being eiiiployedby left hand persons.
On each of the flat sides 3 there is attached a rubber strip 7 which takes the i1npact of the ball when it is driven by the head. ,L
