If you're wondering what, exactly, you are looking at here, the answer is two straight Billiards defying conventional wisdom and shamelessly, simultaneously occupying the same space at the same time. That Cavalier-style cap up front? It actually covers a second draft-hole. Pull it out, swap it for the stem and vice-versa, and what was the front now becomes the back, and what was the back now becomes the front - and what was the bottom becomes the top and what was the top becomes the bottom.
What I'm getting around to, eventually, is that each chamber has its own shank and draft-hole. See - even just trying to explain this thing without sounding crazy can drive a man to the edge. Great fun for fans of H.P. Lovecraft.
