Peterson: Summertime 2019 (X220) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-43418
The "X220" bent Billiard features some of Peterson's classic shaping cues, such as a thick shank and hearty proportions, but it substitutes a bowl that tapers subtly toward the rim in place of one marked by the Irish marque's conventionally upright and tubular aesthetic. It's a considerably robust, full-bodied take on the timeless form and is among the largest of Peterson's bent Billiard renditions. That said, while the bold shaping results in a handful of briar, such boldness and substance is balanced out by a generously bent shank and stem combination.
The Summertime series is an annual release from Peterson, unique to the year but always displaying a bright and sunny aesthetic. It's designed to pair well with the warmer months of the year, prompting outdoor smokes with your favorite summer blends. For 2019, the line showcases a warm, chocolate-stained rustication, with the peaks of the textured finish colored a touch lighter to contrast. Meanwhile, the vibrant, tangerine-hued acrylic stem is rivaled only by the flashy nickel mount that adorns each piece.-Jeffery Sitts
