Scott, I thought that looked close, but as Marchie said, that is a ball. I bought a few just to check, and it is just a ball.
What I was looking for was an actual effect. The little icon in the bottom right ball/effect box looked a bit like the above icon, but it is no longer there. (I'll see if I can get a screenshot/s) Marchie, I never saw a pop-up or notification to buy more.
ATTN: RANT --- How do you find your inventory of effects? It used to be so simple in Flash. Why the hell is the ball/effect box only able to be used or changed during your shot time??? In a short clock game, it's nearly impossible to fiddle around with the effects and spin and still be able to pay attention to making your shot. Add bad eyesight and you can imagine my frustrations trying to muck through all that.
