I then followed that link to http://www.stiffonline.com/
"The worlds first all plastic pipe".
Oh boy. :roll:
Apparently the first of these has sold for $800. I'm actually a bit speechless. There's a sucker born every minute though.

Pretty pipe. No freaking way is it worth $800 bucks. $20 to $30 sounds good. Might be cool hand out for a bachelor party of something.

Nice colors, what keeps it from burning or melting? Plastic fumes are toxic. And of course $800 is absurd.

Plastic didn't make good pipes in the 50's, 60's, and 70's. If it did, "The Pipe" or the Hilson "Fantasia" would still be around. I doubt it will catch on again.

Well they are recyclable; never thought of doing that with my pipes. Maybe I should think of recycling my 40 to 50 year old briars? Umm, I don't think so.
