Barling's Make Fossil (EXEL) (T.V.F) (Pre-Transition) (Replacement Stem)

Product Number: 004-002-7938

What makes a pre-transition Barling so desirable? One of the biggest factors is simply what they were made of. Pre-transition, the Barling company would only look at Algerian briar that pushed the century mark in age. Even with that as a starting point, 80% of what was presented was rejected by the venerable company. While a Barling can be, at times, harder to date than a King's daughter, this Billiard is definitely pre-trans, and sports some very nice grain on the left of the bowl. Sure, the tenon is a replacement, but how often do you get a chance to taste pre-transition Barling wood at this price?
