Last evening I enjoyed my first 1/2 bowl in my new Sav. Morino. Smoked pretty cool. I must admit, I forgot the taste of breaking in a pipe hahaha.
Unfortunately the surface of the pipe bowl bubbled after one use. I contacted my e-tailer & they offered to exchange or refund & put the money towards another pipe. They did state it was common for the Sav. Morino's to bubble, due to the clear coat. I just wish there was a disclaimer stating this prior to purchase.
I'll take the second option and find something of the same style, but not a Morino.
Also, on a side note; I'm completely unable to acces pipesmagazine.com website or forum from my home computer. I'm in my work office right now and its working fine? Has anyone encountered a problem like this?
