Ropp: Geant Sandblasted Bent Billiard Sitter
Product Number: 002-598-8447
A remarkably versatile design, this bent Billiard from Ropp is a proportionally large piece but possesses the ability to sit unassisted thanks to the bowl's flattened heel. Said bowl is Barrel-like in its shaping, its forward-canted disposition working in tandem with the angled transition and downturned stem to provide the necessary balance for this piece to sit. The deep, capacious tobacco chamber promises long smoking sessions while the elegantly bent mouthpiece promotes a comfortable hands-free smoking posture.
Meaning "giant" in French, Ropp's Géant series is devoted to massive briars, prioritizing chamber depth and palm-filling substance. Such a style is a stark departure from the French marque's typically more diminutive and streamlined proportions — the Géant line instead catering to those who prefer more robust shaping and lengthy smoking sessions. Ropp maintains their traditional shaping and finishing style, though, with this particular piece dressed in a classic, dark brown sandblast.- Jeffery Sitts
