At this point we've seen quite a few of the Radices' Aero reverse-Calabashes, for the simple reason that people keep buying them - often their the first pipes to go in any given update. Here Luigi and sons took a firmer turn with the playfully stout proportions of the Aero, lending this plateau-crowned Billiard a paneled shank (unusual on a reverse Calabash) and a somewhat bolder heel. The shank is, if anything, even stouter than usual, but the paneling is handled just right to keep things very comfortable in hand. As for the sandblast, it's left the bowl simply stacked with ring grain.
