I'm personally drawn to the Radice with the faux bamboo...but this being the POY and Boswell's leaving the ordering window open so long I had to vote for the Boswell...gives anyone who joins later in the year a chance to buy one and that's a big reason the POY is a thing to me.
This should probably mentioned whenever you are eulogized. "That's just the kind of guy he was."
Yeah I didn't really conjure those numbers.

This is an older Twin Bore Bark so there will certainly be some differences. Chamber diameter is 7/8".

Also you can see that the shank colors in a bit with smoking & handling.
There are also couple Bamboo carved Billiards on SP and both are just about 6" long with a 2" tall bowl. This seems a size to expect.

Both options are great.
Got me thinking....

Are either Radice OR Boswell ok with making their offer the 2020 POY?

If so, you guys on the BT could save yourselves a lot of headaches by doing this:

The maker who will NOT extend the offer to next year gets the nod as this year's POY.
The maker willing to extend the offer gets the job for 2020.
