For $900, a just-published pipe tobacco market survey of the United States can be had. Click here.
Other reports for other markets/nations are available also. Denmark's was just released a few hours ago.
Good point docgarr, or maybe 180 people for $5 hahaha.
It would be great information to have / know. I remember reading a thread where Kevin made a comment about the traffic / new members for this web site, and it had something like doubled in the past year, or along those lines.
As a relatively new smoker, I was originally drawn to the hobby for these reasons; cigs are obviously bad, cigars are far to expensive for a full time hobby, and I love smoking. The only reasonable course of action was a pipe. I have to assume there are others around my age (30) facing a similar situation. And we've all seen the threads and articles talking about the modern day golden age of pipes.
Dadgum, if anyone wants to send me $900 I'll make up an outstanding pipe tobacco market survey and will ship it to anyone who wants it with free shipping provided. Hey, I'm just that kind of guy. 8)
I saw it the other day and passed it up because of the price tag. I probably already know half the stuff, and the rest I could find out on my own.
Speaking of reports, in case anyone missed this when it came out - it's free -
Feel free to pass it around to friends and forums.
