The previous definition couldn't be further from the truth. If something is the "balls and shaft," it means that it is "the balls" but cooler. Same definition of "the balls" applies, but more emphasis is put on the coolness of something.

Bruce Springsteen is the balls and shaft period. Anyone who can pull off a sliding croth move during the Super Bowl halftime show deserves the title of the "balls and shaft."
