Peterson: Rosslare Royal Irish Sandblasted (221) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-70889
While the bent Billiard is a classic shape, rendered by countless companies, Peterson's "221" iteration is readily recognized as the work of the Irish marque because of the added visual weight attributed to the shank and transition. Such extra heft stretches the heel and provides more palm-filling substance. It makes for an eye-catching, muscular form in profile yet remains well balanced thanks to the curled transition and bent stem out back.
Peterson's Rosslare lines are united by a combination of sterling work from the expert silversmiths of the Sallynoggin factory and bright, sun-inspired acrylic stems. In the Rosslare Classic, that silver is featured around the shank end. The Rosslare Royal Irish takes that further, though, offering fitments not only at the shank end but about the stem base too. The accoutrements combine beautifully with the radiant stem of amber-hued acrylic, seen here, while the vivid palette contrasts against the dark-stained sandblast of the stummel.-Truett Smith
