That aside, would somebody please tell me WTF this could be for?

I was just searching for the speed ball, but found some weird upside down gimp thing.

Lonsdale is now sold by Sports Direct
I have purchased the leather one and it is not bad at all compared to the big guns.Also sold by Sugar Ray s stores , They say its the peanut but it is not. i own that one as well ,the leather on it is amazing .better than the new gray one.The peanut is obsolete ,Sad because it is the best they ever made.
