It hardly takes a master sleuth to figure out what "ELX" represents, especially when you're handling one of these Ashtons in person. This is what you'd call a downright towering bent Billiard - and one with no lack of breadth and substance either, for that matter. As you would expect that translates into a whole lot of chamber as well, and especially in terms of depth. It also happens to make for a long vertical stretch of briar upon which to show off any ring grain it might happen to have, which, in this case, is loads of it.
