Well Barry Jones retired and I figured if I did not get an Upshall now I never would. First is a P grade group 6 bent billiard and second is a group 5 Tillshead bent bulldog. I am concerned about the size of the bent bulldog, and if not large enough I will sell it at cost. Next I guess I will need an Ashton.

My first Upshall pipes arrived today. I am pretty sure I will sell the bent bulldog. It feels just a bit too small for a group 5. The P grade group 6 bent billiard is perfect size.

Fine additions to the collection there Sir!

That bulldog looks bigger to me though. Is it the size of the bowl's capacity that is your issue?

The picture was angled towards the bulldog. Its more the size in the hand as well as the chamber and the size of the bit.

Its far more noticeable in person. I keep fondling it to try and convince myself to keep it, but its not working.
