    I just received this natural Billiard today and it came out better than I could have ever dreamed. It is a group 6 and weighs only 60 grams and incredibly well balanced. I have no trouble clenching while typing and it smokes like a dream.

    Thank guys for the nice comments, it is appreciated. I was also blown away when Rad sent me the pics, I envisioned another great pipe as usual, but he really hit it out of the park with this one.

    Looks almost like some of the better ashton blasts, but that's all Rad, all over. Nice piece for sure.

    Thanks guys.

    Sas, I know what you mean about some of the better Ashton blasts, the symmetry of the blast really stands out. Rad told me that he only gets a few blocks a year that can take this type of blast. I feel very fortunate that it was one of my commissions he was able to do it on.

    Serious blast there!! You know Rad really knows his stuff when he can flawlessly emulate others' style while leaving his own unique footprint.
