    Do the Pete Tankards & Barrels come in a fishtail stem? I've been looking for months, and only see them in P-lip. The smooth ones seem to be fairly uncommon too. I thought maybe I could order a smooth w/fishtail if anyone knows if they come that way?

    Thanks

    Yeah, I've only seen the Tankard offered with a P-Lip as well.
    You can try to "custom" order one with the fishtail but believe me it'll take a while to get it!

    Odd some of the ways the different lines are offered.
    I have a Donegal 03. It's sold everywhere with the silver mount. I wanted a Donegal 999 with silver mount to compliment the 03 but for whatever reason the 999 in the Donegal series is only offered with a nickel mount. Go figure.
    Anyhoo I submitted a "special order" for a Donegal 999 w/ fishtail and silver mount through SmokingPipes several months ago. Still waiting. Good thing we pipe smokers are a patient bunch!!

    I might have to do that with the tankard then. I've been wanting one, but not with the P-lip.

    I like the 03 shape a lot. I had a 2011 Christmas pipe in an 03 shape, but the green finish bubbled up and I traded it out for a Kinsale XL14. I've been wanting another apple, but haven't found it in the configuration I want either (Rosslare Royal Irish fishtail).

    Thanks for the tip on special ordering!

    Send an inquiry to SP customer service would be the next step. Luck!

    I had a Peterson barrel w/ fishtail, a vintage from ebay. I don't know if you can get new w / fishtail. Go to Ashton, they are distributer.

    Contact petersons directly. I did for a pipe that wasn't released in the US. It took 4-6 weeks to get it, but the cost was the same as if I bought it over here.

    I tried to get my special order directly from Petersons as well. Was told they would gladly put it together but that I had to place the order through a retailer.

    I'm pretty sure they only come with P-lips, it's a pretty easy mod to convert it to a fish tail though, only difference would be a small hole instead of a slit at the mouth piece, I have do this with several of mine and it hasn't been an issue.

    I have only ever seen them with the P-Lip stem. However, I know of someone who can make a fishtail stem for it. I have now had a few P-Lips converted over
