I don't know how you absorbed a ballista bolt and put it in your pocket, but I am afraid.
You activate a strange device that absorbs incoming hazards and places them in their own timeless demiplane to be released later. When you are targeted by a ray, projectile, or single target spell or effect you can instead absorb it. In the case of spells, you have to succeed on an opposed caster level check using your initiator level as your effective caster level.
While absorbed this maneuver cannot be unreadied and remains dormant. As a standard action at any point later you can release the effect at a new target in range, using the attack rolls, damage, or save DCs of the original attack. This then expends the maneuver normally.
This gadget is powered by magic and is a supernatural ability.
