When does a billiard become a pot on the shape chart? An undeniable pot is truncated so it almost yells its name, but many such pipes hover between the two. Is it a short-bowled billiard or a tall pot? Shapes are often hybrids and arguable, but the billiard versus pot question, in many cases, is almost the owner's call. I have both cylindrical and panel pipes that call the question. I usually call them billiards unless the pipe makes a liar out of me just looking at it.
