    I hear about them but how do they defer from other pipes?

    My one example of a 9mm pipe is a Peterson XL 90. The stem is drilled out to except the filter. I don't use a filter in it and it smokes without gurgling. It has an acrylic finish but doesn't get hot either.

    I've always been crazy but it's kept me from going insane.

    Some people use them, most don't. It's up to you. The savinelli I just ordered yesterday comes with 6mm filters. The filters are going back in the box and in the closet.

    I own a pipe that has a 9mm and a savinelli with a 6mm. IMO, i havent noticed any difference. All i can say is that the 6mm can reduce gurgling (since there is a piece of cedar absorbing any moisture) and the 9mm has carbon rocks that can filter out the harmful carcinogenic particles. A lot of people claim that they will always smoke with filters so can they live a little longer and some claim that filters can reduce the flavor experience.

    I havent noticed that from aromatics; maybe installing filters with orientals, Virginians, and English blends can be noticeable.

    In my experience ive smoked with and without off and on (I smoke maybe once or twice every two weeks in a span of year). If you have a filter pipe i recommend smoking the filter for a month and the other w/o. I guess its just personal preference.

    Example: People like smoking a cigar with a band and some do not.

    9mm pipes are just bored out to take filters. Very popular in Europe . Not so here.

    If at first you don't succeed you are running about average.
