Ardor: Giove Billiard
Product Number: 002-004-2295
This is one of a few rather Beckerish straight Billiards we've seen from the Roveras, sharing a similar style of trim transition and shank, pointed heel, and tall bowl; however, while those similarities are easy to spot, there are noticeable differences as well. Firstly, overall these Ardors a little softer versus the typical Becker, the heel though pointed still having rounded contours for example, and the transition being a little more drawn out and gradual. Likewise the Roveras go for a bowl that, while still tall lean, is gently tapered, and very slightly convex at the flanks and fore, versus a Becker more often having a more direct climb ending in a wider and sharper-edged rim.
